Picture from the darkest day in Northern Norway 21st of December 2012
Taken with Olympus EPL-1 digital camera September 21st December 2012. Click image for larger view.
I had the pleasure of visiting my home place during the darkest days of this winter. Since we had clear weather it was not really dark at all in the middle of the day. Quite the opposite as the sky was filled with wonderful colors from a sun in the distant horizon.
I photographed the picture above a bit later than noon and the day was actually even lighter earlier in the day. The colors of the sky varied throughout the day and it was amazing to see, especially since I now live in the middle of Oslo where there is not so much landscapes to be seen.
The mountain you can see in this photo is called Drangen and I have photographed this magnificent piece of rock several times like here and here.
