Winter sunset from Keiservarden
Norway

For several days this winter the winds from east has kept the snow away and winter has held an ice cold grip on the nature, The air has been extraordinary clear, and the resulting sunrise and sunsets has been an awe inspiring view for all visitors to Northern Norway this time of the year. The sun is not above the horizon for another two weeks, the sunrise and the sunsets replace each other with no "day" in-between.

The temperature is -7C, and wind nearly 20m/second made this a very freezing and shaky attempt of doing a HDR exposure, so a few of the shots were blurry due to the wind shaking the camera. Still the atmosphere and the great view can be sensed, and my faithful panodog had a great time too :)

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
