Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry on Top


Sorry for the delay in posting for this challenge – I’m still busy going through all my images from our trip to Svalbard and Norway.  After ten days cruising the Arctic on a small boat taking wildlife and scenic photos, we returned to “mainland” Norway and did a car trip through some incredibly beautiful towns and scenery.  We spent our last night in the incredible town of Alesund – a beautiful harbor town with an art nouveau theme.  At just before midnight, I wandered out in town as it looked like there might be a nice sunset (one of the things that we missed in Svalbard as the sun never really went down).  I took this photo over the classic ships in the harbor and the small lighthouse at the end of the pier – a beautiful view and a great way to complete our trip.

    I’m amazed with things like the sun not setting or rising at the poles and how that varies in degrees as you leave or arrive. Very pretty photo. It looks like a winter sunset…in summer. God made one interesting planet.

    • Hi Allison – It takes some getting used to when the sun never really goes down. We had to keep the shades on our windows down to simulate night. It was always a surprise if I woke up and looked out in the middle of the night to find bright sunshine……

        Have you ever seen the movie “Insomnia” with Al Pacino and the late Robin Williams?
