The sun is special during the winter time at the polar circle. First and foremost because it is scarce. Depending on the latitude our home star even disappears for a couple of months and the world remains dark. Slowly the sun raises again every day a little bit more, shy in the beginning it dares going higher with the weeks passing by. In this time of the year the few hours of daylight are encompassed with a very particular light and it provides little warmth in a bitterly cold and hostile (though beautiful) environment.
