Kaamos by Mishkin-Rayman Kaamos by Mishkin-Rayman
Tornedalen, Norrland, Sweden
Panoramic Long-exposure Pseudo HDR (4x1 exp)


Shot in the northernmost part of Sweden on the 28th of
december, above the arctic circle. -30F (-34C)

Kaamos is what the people in this region call the blue hue
that everything gets during the coldest winter months, when
the sun never rise above the horizon. (yes, that's the moon
you're looking at, not the sun.)

I'll go back this summer to see the midnight sun. ;)

Thanks to ~Lepisto87 for her extensive
retouch work. One of the pictures (upper right corner)
where damaged. This picture WOULD NOT have been
possible without her.

Hope you enjoyed it, thanks for any and all faves & comments

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

How is that the moon? It's such a vivid yellow. Now I believe it's made of cheese! Luminescent cheese...

Very nice time exposure. It still amazes me that parts of the earth have weird patterns where the sun won't rise "normally" during certain parts of the year. Thanks for sharing. :)

Same goes for me! I'm from the southernmost part of sweden, so visiting the far north was quite exotic. ;P
