Wordless Wednesday 46-22

This was the only moment when we enjoyed sunshine in week’s time. Moreover the only image we took during our 90 min. walk. I do not see sunrise and sunset from my home. The sun is always behind those mountains.

What Causes the Sun to Not Rise In the Winter?

Both the occurrence of the Midnight Sun and the Polar Night are a direct result of the position of the Earth and its relationship with the Sun. As most people already know, the Earth is not positioned perfectly perpendicular. If it was, then every location on the entire planet would receive exactly 12 hours of sunlight and 12 hours of darkness every single day. However, as we already know, this is not the case.  

The reason for this is that the Earth has a slight tilt to it. In fact, it is estimated that the Earth’s tilt is approximately 23.5 degrees on its axis. This fairly significant tilt of the earth means that one end of it is always pointing towards the sun while the opposite end is pointing away from it.

However, since the Earth is also constantly rotating on its axis and making a complete revolution every 24 hours, it means that the majority of the planet is still receiving a fairly equal amount of sunlight for the majority of the year. But as you get further away from the equator, this ratio of sunlight to darkness begins to become more and more unequal.

A photograph is a story and as an author it’s up to us how much we want to reveal. The light helps us to create the scene.

सुन ले बातें उनकी ग़ौर से,

हक़ीक़त कुछ और है,

वो बयाँ कुछ और किये जाते हैं।
