A world of snow

As our plane flew across Lapland the sun started to set. Out of the window all I could see, for miles, was snowy wilderness interrupted only by dark forests. As the sun started to sink the horizon looked almost rounded; as though looking at a globe. The sky was a darkening blue, streaked with purples, mauves, mauroons and shades of rich reds and golds.

By the time our plane landed on the snowy tarmac of Enontekio airport and we had managed to bundle out, the most magnificent sunset I have ever witnessed was almost over and very soon the darkness was upon us.
