We are approaching the shortest day of the year on the Northern Hemisphere.
Here at 62.5 Degr. N. Lat. we cannot claim to have Polar Nights, but it gets depressingly dark, especially on cloudy/rainy days.
Today it has been fairly good with clear and dry weather, but sunrise was at 09:52 hrs. and sunset at 15:04 hrs. so it doesn’t leave much time to get a suntan.
Here is a picture my wife took at mid-day with the sun just barely climbing above the mountain as seen from our balcony :
She took another picture from a different location at 1520 hrs::
And back on the balcony at 1600 hrs.:
No snow yet, or in the forecast for X-mas.
The temp. hover around 5-6C for the next week or so, but can get up to 10-15C with føhn effect.
