Midnight Sun

The midnight sun is back! I love this season :) Last Sunday, we took the cable car up at 22:30. The cable car now runs until 1:00 in the morning so that people can see the midnight sun from there. What a view! This panorama is taken at about 23:00.

The weather was very calm and warm enough to sit down and enjoy the midnight sun with some chocolate and a cup of tea :) The snow is slowly disappearing, but we still had to cross large patches and at times I sank into the snow until my knees! Not long though until I can go hiking… Ti på Topp is starting on Sunday, can’t wait!

The photos below are taken around midnight. I thought the sun might disappear behind the mountains, but it didn’t :)

Close to midnight, the light became very yellow Crossing a patch of snow - not really skiing conditions anymore!

We took the last cable car down at 1:00, what a magical evening! I’ll probably come back next week to watch something very special – a solar eclipse at midnight!! Fingers crossed for clear skies :)

    I always get a bit jealous when you have midnight sun in the summer, and even when you have midday dusk in the winter. Something about the arctic seasons makes me want to return. I love all these pictures you post. The panorama is beautiful as always, and you look so happy in the picture with you both!
