One of the many perks of fieldwork in the high north is the midnight sun, the ‘endless day’ of weeks in a row.
While it has its advantages for long days of fieldwork, it surely also adds to the spirit. If there is anything that one loves, it is light, and the Arctic summer has plenty of it.
I am now getting used to this pretty much, though: no worries about when to end your day, no worries about how long the hike can be, or how early it can start. A blessing for a short field trip like those we have in the north.
