Cries in Nordlending
Last time the sun came out was 2 weeks ago. Last night it was -20C.
EDIT: On the flipside, this is what "midnight" looks like in summer:
Hi everyone, I would like to share with a capture of how the light looks around December-January time of the year. The capture is from Mid-Norway, so this is actually way "worse" (meaning darker) if you go farther up North. It gives everything a colorful glow though, and goes well with Christmas and all that stuff. Also a great time for us landscape photographers haha! Anyway, this photo is from a frozen lake in a forest (Bymarka) close to Trondheim. The weather was around -11 C, no wind, but really chilly in this specific spot due to a waterfall that was running into the lake beneath the ice.
A reached this place by taking a day off from work, taking the tram to the end stop and skiing for around 1 hour. Nothing's as amazing as empty forests on an early morning during sunrise! Due to cold temperatures I started nosebleeding, was a bad moment to realize I didn't have any tissues with me, till I realized I can just use snow to clean my face.
Captured with a Canon and EF 25-105 lens. In Photoshop I corrected the white balance to bring back the warm glow from the sun and did some brightness and contrast adjustments. If anyone's interested, I have more over at instagram.
“There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”
Such a great a Norwegian sentiment I learned over and over again, lol. :-)
Permanent golden hour? What a dream.
Indeed! It's strange, you know the chase of that light, since it fades away too quickly? I get it here during winter too, but after one hour while it just grows either more yellow or more orange, depending on the time of day, you suddenly realize that you have a few hours left and can relax haha.
I admire how you can brave the cold to capture such a gorgeous scene
It's not as bad as it sounds (or looks), as long as one is dressed right - need a whole layer of good wool clothing from top to bottom and as long as you keep moving, you won't ever be cold. I spent around 20 minutes in this spot, so the cold got to me eventually, but disappeared as soon as I started skiing again!

Beautiful light! -11 with no wind should be no problem, until you have to take off your gloves for the images... ;-) A waterfall closeby also spoils the fun partly due to its moisture... Nonetheless, nice one with good snow details!
