Yesterday (21 December) we experienced the shortest day here (daylight hours, not working hours!). However, it was one of the brightest in a while so we actually had more hours of useable daylight than expected (about 5 hours). Below are pictures taken just after 9am with a spectacular dawn. The camera didn’t do a very good job with the colours (see the panorama stitched from pictures taken only seconds apart!), but it was a very fiery red.
The ‘dark time’ has so far been fine for us, and we haven’t really felt like we missed the sun that much. Looks like we can survive the arctic!
Today, 22nd December, dawned purple – brown. There hasn’t been too much to do, so we got skates from the library in anticipation of some fun.
