A Winter day near the solstice

Dermot Cole's article in the News Miner pointed me to this beautiful YouTube video of a short day in Fairbanks. The photographer's name is Eric Muehling, and he "used his digital camera to take 1,882 separate frames from just before sunrise to sunset... He did this last week on the West Ridge at UAF, putting his camera in a cardboard box with a 60-watt light bulb to help keep the batteries warm."

In other news, we are in the clutches of one of the few cold snaps so far of this Winter. Temps have been hovering in the -30s (both F and C). At my home, though, it's 10F degrees warmer than in town. Which makes it downright balmy. T-shirt weather, really. It hasn't dropped below -30F. Yeah!

I can't imagine having such a short day. Very beautiful video though!
