Winter sunset

Sunset in the subarctic regions of Greenland is nothing short of amazing.
It is the period where daylight is something a little closer to a a couple of hours worth of golden evening light.

Something that in and on its own is worth a walk, but it gets better than that:)

Sometimes waiting until just around when the sun is about to set, find a sweet spot of your own facing Northeast and then just wait for it, because as the sun sets on a southwestern heading, the sky in the opposite directions puts on a stunning show.

It may be chilly to sit it out, but such a display accompanied by the sound of the lice flakes cracking as the tide works its magic is part of what makes Greenland so amazing.

  2. Thank you Lloyd.
    On tuesday I have been off the crutches for two weeks.
    Progress is slow though, but I am following orders and probably getting there.

    A much appreciated compliment.
    The short days we have during winter can be stunningly beautiful as they give way to the night.
