Scandinavian Skies

Image from

Winter is certainly on its way here. Nights are just plain cold now and the days are mostly overcast. Or, like today, the skies are eerily bright with a light that brings a striking whiteness into the house. It reminds of what I think of as 'Scandinavian light' - that is, the natural light that I have seen in films from that region. Harsh, bleak but somehow pure and inviting at the same time. The grey clouds are gathering now and we're due for more rain but my little window of white has transported me for just a moment or two.
