Monday we got back from a great trip to the north of Sweden, where the sun only rises and sets. It was literally dawn for two hours, and then dusk for two.
Other than great 24 hour bus rides, we also got to meet some interesting people doing a lot of interesting work to save the world. I suppose some day I should write all about it, but for now, I am over my head with other work to get done.
Please enjoy, however, these lovely photos of my classmate and her Ski (the hostel where we stayed only had two pairs, so we only got one ski each). The hostel, where we spent two nights, was on a great little farm in a cozy little village. The nights were -25 Celsius, but that just made it all the more fun to roll around in the snow naked between dips in the sauna.
dude these pictures are beyond beautiful.
Thanks. These are my favorite out of the bunch. Anctually, I took the photo without a long shutter, and without a flash, so they turned out really dark. One could barely make out the person and the barn was non-existent. I just took out all the shadows with Photoshop, and since it was *all* a shadow, it beighhtened the whole thing up, giving it that flat 2D look that you see here.
