A salmon farming operation above the Arctic Circle in Steigen, Norway, seen in a mosaic of iPhone photos. (Image: © Tom Yulsman) In coming days, I'll be posting some images and stories from the Arctic in Norway. I'm here to report on climate issues, and to attend the Arctic Frontiers conference in Tromsø. In the meantime, I hope you'll enjoy the image above. It's a mosaic of six iPhone images stitched together with a wonderful app called Autostitch. I have not cropped it, so that's why the shape is somewhat irregular. You're looking at a fish farm near Steigen, Norway. The sun has returned to this spot above the Arctic Circle, but it is not yet visible at sea level because mountains are in the way. The alpenglow on the mountains in the background lasted for hours.
