It’s 10.30 at night here in Stockholm. It’s still light. There’s a deep pink, purple and blue glow in the sky and the most amazing looking clouds. It’s awe-inspiring. It makes me want to drag out my watercolors and attempt to capture the colors that always seem to elude the camera lens.
This time of year, sunsets seem to go on forever, with the colors deepening in intensity as the hour grows later. Just now, it’s darkest around 12.30 am or so. But it’s never completely dark. And the sky is fully light again by 3 am. It’s wonderfully energizing and beautiful, even if I do have to put on an eyeshade to sleep at this point. I am so grateful to get to experience this wonderful light. It makes me wonder if I can ever live without it. But you will need to remind me of that come January.
