The Quest of the Last Sunlights over Tromsø

Originally published on The North Way, my previous blog …

Today we are going to take the cable car which leads to the top of the mountain overhanging Tromsø and contemplate the landscape illuminated by the warm colors of the last sunbeams. We are December 20th. Today the sun will show for the last time before a long and cold arctic winter…

We head toward the summit following footprints formed in the snow. This day is really beautiful. Which means that the clouds are not there to protect us from the cold and behind this beauty the hardness of the winter can be felt.

From here, civilization seems so fragile … The houses forming the major part of the city on Tromsøya island are dominated by majestic mountains, mountains between which fjords waves and get mixed with the ocean in a symphony of lights and colours. But the sun does not let enough time for nature to play with its colours during winter days. Soon, it will be necessary to compose with the city lights instead.

      Hi Pascal,

      Thank you very much! :)

      I am currently working with a Canon camera (5D, 1st version).

      Happy to see that you’ve been able to see the northern lights! I still have not seen them :(

      Cheers!
