Photographer's Note

This is a follow up to the previous post - a wider view of the Arctic Cathedral. Named for its grandeur, it is, in fact, a parish church, not a cathedral. The building was designed by Jan Inge Hovig and constructed in 1965.

The first winter sunrise takes place in Tromso in mid-January. I went there a week later, when days were about 3 hours' long. I wanted to experience the polar night but with a short break each day for taking photos. I was, in a way, disappointed as, with 3 hours' long days, night didn't last for 21 hours. The twilight began about 3 hours before the sunrise so, most of the day, it wasn't really dark. But I did appreciate the time I had for dusk photography - 3 "blue hours" at each end of the day!
