Thirty Days of Photographs: Night

I live within spitting distance of the polar circle. This means that our summer nights last for about 30 seconds and never really get dark. But the sun does set, and sometimes you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset that sets the sky on fire.

  1. Wow, it doesn't get any more romantic than that. The sky looks like it's on fire. It's not hard to imagine taking a walk on the beach with my honey-dripper under that sun. I'd get a kiss for sure. Assuming I hadn't eaten a lot of garlic and onions, of course. No sunset can overcome garlic and onion.

  2. That's beautiful, I don't know how I could live without total darkness night. It's cool the way the sun is shaped like a ninja turtle head.

  3. You shouldn't let your dripper hang out, um unless it worked for you in the past.

  4. I admire you. I used to travel to the Yukon and Northwest Territories and marvelled at the hours of sunlight - and lack of night - in the summer time. Kind of made it hard to sleep when you're used to 8 hours of dark. I always stayed up late. This picture is beautiful. I want to visit!

  5. That has to be the most gorgeous photo of the most gorgeous place I've ever seen.  My word, Ziva!  That's so spectacular it makes my heart pound!

  6. That's probably one of the best sunset shots I've ever seen.  Totally awesome!

    ;-)

  7. Oh my.  I love sunsets.  I can tell how the sun is working to set.  :)

  8. Wow! Pictures like this always makes me think about our boating trips (is that a real word?) with mum and dad when I was little.  Back then views like this were taken for granted and barely noticed, today I am longing for them. But on the other hand I am priviledged to snuggle with (är det rätt preposition?) those baby feet every day.

  9. Oh, oh! I can translate that strange writing in the middle of all the regular writing. It says, "Is it wrong to proposition a rat?" And the answer is yes, I don't care how nice he is.

  10. It often has, but I do get sand on it sometimes. Very irritating.

  11. Uck, a sandy dripper can not be good

  12. The best part about this pic is that it gets even bigger when you click on it! Gloriousness.
    Thankfully the pic won't burn my retinas even though it's so vivid that it feels like it probably could.

  13. Fina foton! Sen när jag blir i lite bättre skick här så kan vi fara ut å fota tillsammans. Har också en systemkamera å skräpar här! :)

  14. Jo vitsi, det sku va jättekiva! Sen kan jag bli förbannad för att du e bättre på att fota än jag och så kan du skratta och peka. :D

  15. I was actually a little worried about going blind while I was staring at the sun through the zoom lens. It was worth it, though, and I'll probably be able to get rid of the white cane soon.

  16. I know, isn't it funny how we never realize what we have until it's gone? But once your house is all done and you can't wait to get out of it, you'll be taking to the sea again in no time. ;)

    The baby feet really are adorable. And the baby attached to them is pretty nice, too. :P (Och jepp, perfekt. Från och med nu får du skriva mina inlägg då du kan språket bättre än jag.)

  17. Yeah, it was working really hard that night.

  18.  *picks up your jaw and hands it to you* You're welcome!

  19. Thank you Double-O, it really was a pretty one!

  20.  Wow, thank you, Linda. I was just extremely lucky to be there for this sunset, and to be able to take a photo of it.

  21. I don't sleep very well at all during the summer months, even though I should be used to the light by now. But we get about 19 hours of dark in the winter, and I never have any problems adjusting to that. Weird.

  22. A ninja turtle head? Like one of those teenage mutant ninja turtles? Huh, I guess you're right. Sort of.

  23. It was pretty romantic. My camera and I had a real moment. It's a really good thing I hadn't eaten any garlic and onion.

  24. Yep, buying a boat is the first thing we are planning to do after paying our mortgage back, which should take no more than 25 years. But that won't actually happen because there is this country with a huge national dept making the interests go crazy.

    Let's hope for some inflation.

    Och eftersom du förmodligen är bättre på svenska än jag kan du skriva mina blogginlägg. Bra deal.

  25. Yeah, certain countries with huge national debts should really just realize that taxes aren't as much evil as they keep the freaking country from going bankrupt. Good luck with that mortgage, though!

    Heh, kanske det är bäst att vi håller oss till våra respektive bloggar trots allt. Jag är inte så säker på att jag har nån vettig åsikt gällande kakel och tapeter och målfärg och betong och bergull.
