Tromsø and its surroundings have been held in the grip of a harsh cold for a couple of weeks. All of nature frozen, chilled with shrouds of frost while the earth sleeps deeply. But even seemingly in death there is life. The sun again graces us with her presence on the clearest of skies, painting it with bold brushes in gaudy colors. These contrasts always leave me out of breath, heart pounding and eyes leaking.
