December Sun

Oy, it is the sun making a rare appearence in late December. I had to go out and follow it's rays. It was around noon and the sun just rises above the horizon and sets again after 20 odd minutes. For the brief moment it is up, the shadows are long and light yellow.

The pictures on the white building were taken in Oulu in November, just before the first snow. Oulu is some times called the White City of the North. The name derives from the time when almost all building in Oulu were painted in white. The colour was a camouflage during the war time when the Soviet planes bombed Oulu.
