I spent my Christmas holidays in the Yukon visiting my brother and his family. I was worried about so few hours of daylight in the winter, but I soon realized that the 4-5 hours of light we got each day was nearly perfect.
Sunrise is so close to sunset that they morph into each other, creating an extended golden hour period.
This photo was taken on the road to Dawson City. We drove past this lookout and I made my brother turn around and go back and I am so glad I did. I could see for miles across the vast Boreal forest and the sun was just turning the distant mountains a purply red.
This photo was taken around 14:30 - right before sunset! The temperature was a chilly -33 degrees Celsius, but it can get much colder so I was just glad it wasn't the usual -40.
Whereever you look in the Yukon takes your breath away, but this is one of my favourite pictures from the entire trip.
