The Light Is Returning

One month after the Winter Solstice, the sun's light is returning to the Arctic Circle.


These photos, taken by Jan Inge Larson in northern Norway, show the horizontal rays of the sun as it just peeks over the horizon, and, at higher latitudes, the "blue hour"--normally twilight, but now the brightest time of the day.
