icy landscape in Norway

Blue-Sky Night

This photo of Lyngen, Norway’s icy landscape was submitted by Isabelle Bacher. The dark Norwegian winter gives these ominous jagged rocks and swirling seawater an eerie glow, but Bacher enjoys the view. “Dark all day and all night,” she writes, “but a blue light in the sky makes this time magical.”
