Renate lives in Finnmark in the north of Norway. This is the land of eternal light and eternal night. At 70°N we have the midnight sun for two months in the summer. The sun never sets and the night is as bright as the day. In winter we have the polar night, which is an equally long period when the sun never rises above the horizon. The nature in this arctic region is fascinating in so many ways!
