Magical Arctic Light

This morning we woke to a misty rain falling to the icy ground, creating very slippery roads – ice with a layer of water on top.  Watch out!  I was expecting a gray day and not much daylight since sunrise is at 9:15 am and sunset is at 12:43.

But this is what happened with the low-rising sun shined through the misty rain clouds at 9:45 AM – MAGIC! 004

    I have only been following experiencenorthcape for a few months (unfortunatly I only found your blog after a brief visit to Honningsvag last February) but your pictures are a reminder of what a magical place your little bit of the world is.

      Thanks for following the blog, Richard. I appreciate it. Hope you had some beautiful light in February- it can be amazing, but we also have strong storms in February. Glad you’re enjoying experience north cape and I agree with you, we live in a little magical place.

      I almost always have my camera with me 🙂 I was in the gallery working on putting things back together after the remodeling and turned around and outside the window it was amazing. Had to stop working and run outside to take some pictures.

    You live in a god damned post card! Amazing! You could probably sell these to your local board of tourism.

    Magical, indeed! I do love this atmosphere! 😉

  13. There is something so special and exhilirating about that special yellowish light one sees after a storm/rain. So special and so transient. So glad you captured it, and the rainbow shot is worthy of a photographic award!

      I was thrilled to turn around after taking shots of the horizon and find the rainbow. What a treat. Thanks for your comments and for stopping by – it’s greatly appreciated.

  14. Wow! What an amazing part of the world you live in. I’m fascinated and intrigued by your daylight hours – so different to where we live on the East coast of Australia! I’ve just discovered your blog and love, love. love it! Beautiful photographs and an insiders view of your special place on earth. Thank you so much!
