Mid-day in Yellowknife

Shot taken in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, Canada. In the Arctic, for several weeks during the winter months, the sun never actually rises but only appears just beneath the horizon. The daylight consists of these sunrises/sunsets where the clouds are lit up from below for about two to four hours. It’s the only brightness you get so it’s a riveting spectacle.
