    Must be strange taking photos like this at midnight. Well maybe for you its normal.
    Great light capture Frank.

  • Thanks Michael!
    Quite strange for other Norwegians as well. From the south of Norway and way up north were I live, there’s some 1000 miles. In the south it’s dark at night at summertime. Some can’t live up here as they’re get insomnia caused by the light. On the other side, around Christmas it’s pitch dark even at midday. No problem for me, but some people gets a winter depression due to the lack of daylight.
    I enjoy the darkness of winter. More time for Aurora hunting….
