Days are already quite short here in North Europe. I took this photo two days ago from Finland and Sweden border towards Haparanda old water tower in Sweden. Time was 14:32 Finnish time or 13:32 Swedish time and like you see sun is already very low. Official sunset time was about 30min later.

It's still little a bit more than one month for the shortest and darkest time of the year. That will be just before Xmas. Hopefully there will be some snow and then it doesn't look so dark. At least after today the view is totally white.
