The­re are still sun­sets, still are a „nor­mal“ time, name­ly in the evening. The sun­sets are now incredi­b­ly quick­ly moving towards mid­ni­ght, noti­ce­ab­ly later every day, until they join the sun­ri­se to crea­te the mid­ni­ght sun.

The­re are just 2 mon­ths bet­ween polar night and mid­ni­ght sun. The polar day will chan­ge life com­ple­te­ly here, ani­mals and peop­le will sleep less, be more acti­ve, chan­ge their rhythm.

And of cour­se the light will chan­ge. For a few weeks, April will still bring blue and red colours during the night, but the­se will give way to the sun in May, which will then be well abo­ve the hori­zon 24 hours a day.

And this is why we are here now, in late March, some hund­red metres abo­ve Hior­th­hamn, at one of the most beau­ti­ful view points, enjoy­ing the views over Advent­fjord and Lon­gye­ar­by­en in the light of an evening sun­set. The­re won’t be many more until Sep­tem­ber.

By the way, my new book is in print and it can now be orde­red 🙂 it is a pho­to book with the tit­le “Nor­we­gens ark­ti­scher Nor­den (3): Die Bären­in­sel und Jan May­en”, with Ger­man text Click here for fur­ther details!
