One thing I like about Western Europe. Since, compared to Texas, California or other places I have spent much time at, it's closer to the North Pole the days in Summer time are very long. With the daylight savings time that makes for long evenings and if you are at the edge of the very broad European time zone like my home town in Normandy it's even more so. Darkness doesn't come until 11 pm or something.
Something I don't like so much about Western Europe. For the same reasons the days are very short in the Winter. With overcast weather, not a rarity, it's still dark at 8:30am and by 4pm you feel it's all over. So most people who work regular hours rarely see the light of day.
Truly I don't really care that much about it but it's fun to notice the change. One thing for sure is that it could be worse. I could be staying in Northern Sweden or Northern Alaska!
By the way, one of my too many desires would be to see the Midnight Sun in July in Northern Sweden. Who knows? It may happen someday.
The way of the sun in the "night" of the 5./6. july 2005 between 23.00 pm and 01.45 am in Uttakleiv on the Lofoten-islands in the north of norway. Composite of 12 exposures made every 15 minutes.
