Evening light

Even though we usually don’t cross the Antarctic Circle, it hardly doesn’t get dark in summer on the Antarctic Peninsula. As South Georgia is much further north, we do see stars at night. This is a beautiful change from the more or less continuous daylight we experience on the Antarctic Peninsula. This evening we had a stunning sunset, followed by an even more attractive blue hour. With the sun behind the horizon, the blue light stays behind, creating these dramatic pictures.
