Project for a Recovering-Insomiac

The view of the sky from our cottage was amazing, especially during sunset, and I loved the colorful sky that never quite went dark. So I decided it would be a great idea to take pictures of the sky every half hour. No one thought I was really serious about the "project" although they agreed that it was a cool idea. Maybe I'm a little nuts to have stayed up all night to take pictures of starless sky, but it was amazing to observe the shifting shades of blue, orange, pink, and silver of the sky as the night went on. Here are some of the pictures from that evening.

The sun slowly started to make its way down shortly after 10pm.

Going, going, going....

And...
Gone!!!

The sun finally said good-bye at 10:23pm.

Between 2:30am and 3:00am was the darkest it ever got, which wasn't that dark at all.

MISSING
I must have dozed off and missed taking a photo. Oops!

5:00am

5:30am

6:00am


6:30am
It actually looks a bit darker at 6:30 than it did at 6:00.
That's only because it started to get quite foggy.
I decided this was a sign--for me to go to bed.

The End

Amazing pictures, Jiyeon. Which one of your many cameras did you use for the project? One more thing: try and do a similar sequence during the day in mid-December - it'll be just as much fun.

Hej again, is it possible to request a post? I'd love to read a bit more about Jøssåsen: how many are you? Workshops, households, age of villagers, etc? In other words: a few dry, boring facts, please. And how does the place compare to Blair Drummond, the other Camphill community you stayed at? Just in case you run out of ideas...Keep up the good work, and ha' det bra!
