The End of the Polar Night, the Return of the Cold!

While this year’s polar night is coming to an end, the previously absent cold has returned. After the past few weeks have been cloudy and warm, the sky has now cleared up again, and brought back temperatures that would have been expected during the polar night. Yet, the sun does not shine in the village (although today I saw some trees in the sun light, up on a hill), but the periods of daylight are getting longer every day. Here are some images from a short walk, showing the special light conditions at the end of this year’s polar night, at around -30 degrees Celsius.
