The sun hasn’t been showing up in Hetta since about two weeks by now. With the absence of light, also the cold of a polar winter came by for a short visit over the past weekend. Here are some images from a walk in the village center of Hetta ..

The last weekend was quite cold, with temperatures around -40 degrees Celsius on Sunday. The lowest temperature I have recognized in the past days was, when a car thermometer (unsuccessfully) suggested to stay inside, by showing -44.5 degrees Celsius. Also on Monday, when I came home from shopping, our thermometer still seemed literally frozen at -36 degrees Celsius. When I then went for a short walk, to run some errands, I took my camera and tripod with me, and made some shots from the center of the village Hetta. So, that’s how it looks during a winter afternoon, on a working day.
