Sunset at the North Pole.



This picture was taken the week Of May 11, 2009 at the North Pole. Something I will never see in person but since it's not on my 'list' all is fine by me. Awesome raw beauty and something nether world about it, I think, as it should be.

  2. I got close last November - the top of Norway. As a warm-weather person, this stuff isn't normally for me. But I would recommend that you do it once. These kinds of photos are every day experiences for the folks who live up there. Thanks for posting this.

  5. Nice photo! I love pictures of the sky, and I've never seen a moon that big! Going to the Yukon is on my to do list, that's as close as I'll get to the North Pole I think!

  7. Never say never, verily! You might find yourself up there, you could!

    It's an incredible image, hard to visualize the sun circling the horizon, but it does!

    The world's a wonderful place, you don't have to make stuff up to be amazed by it.

    Beautiful picture but not a God at work, an art work by Inga Nielsen called Hideaway.
