Sunlight: a dwindling commodity

As you can probably infer from today's title the days up here in the arctic are getting mighty short. Mixed with an extremely overcast sky, the result has been very very little sunlight... and its going to get worse. In about 10 days or so the sun will rise for the last time in about three months. While this of-course in theory sounds kind of interesting and exotic... the part of me which is susceptible to the winter blues is quite concerned. It is however true that my concerns have absolutely zero effect on geography, the positioning of the earth or the weather... so I guess that the discussion is mute. I guess it will be interesting to see what kinds of photos come out of this experience. Thats all for now!

Beautiful photos Carlos .... Hang in there... maybe a good time to meditate and bring in your own sunlight by imagination.... you can do it! I know you can
I and my brother suffer from the same... so I sympathize with you . I remember all too well.
