It was January and the sun was just returning to Kirkenes with its -30° Celcius. The flight went from Kirkenes to Oslo where it was not much warmer.
This is an experiment, my first attempt to combine pictures with audio. I asked my husband, a professional musician, to make some music to accompany my series of pictures. He made this especially for this project. To check out more of his stuff, see https://soundcloud.com/vegarddahlinskauhansen.
The polar night is coming to an end, and the sun is finally reaching up above the horizon. Just barely, but still powerful. To see the sunlight, we had to walk up to a height. Today is the first day I have actually seen the sun for a week. The pinkish, smudged, red ball hovering over the blue fjord, took my breath away. I wasn’t the only one to stop and try to capture the beauty. These pictures are taken during the last few days in Kirkenes, Norway. All the pictures are taken midday, and this is as light as it gets. The final pictures is from Gardermoen, near Oslo.
