For the first time I have gone out fishing on the sea during the polar night period in Northern Norway. And what an experience that is. Even though we got no sunlight the light can be absolutely beautiful with different colors everywhere as you can see in these photos.

Above you can see how the sky looks in the middle of the day, and below you can see when the sky starts to get darker.
The mountain in the picture is called Drangen and is located on the island Rolla. It is a very picturesque mountain.

But the main reason I went out on the sea was to fish. I was able to catch some nice Christmas cod and even had an Atlantic halibut circling a small cod on my hook. The halibut circled for about 10 rounds before snatching the cod off my hook and then it went back into the cold, dark deep. It was a pity I was not able to catch it, but what an amazing experience!
