The other light

Our primary goal for the trip to Northern Norway was to find the Aurora borealis. With success as can be seen in the previous posts. But of course, there was also another light, day light. Not too much, the sun didn’t rise above the mountains for the whole week we were there, but it was excellent light. We had a long blue hour, then a golden hour that lasted for around 3 hours, followed by another long blue hour. A photographers dream, especially as the blue hour didn’t start before 9 a.m. That was good, as when it got dark, the skies turned green, so we didn’t get to bed early.

Here two examples of landscapes in this beautiful light.
