Stian Holmen - Blue night


Wintermood from Spitsbergen.
I have never seen evenings and nights so intense blue, for so many hours.
This picture was taken after a very long day on snowmobile, shooting seals and looking for polarbear, in quite cold conditions.
My body said: go home and get some sleep and food man!
is it possible to go home when nature offer light- and colorconditions like this?
Of course not…
