This is just before sunrise, around 9.30 am. The sun sets around 3 pm. So the days are short compared to Quito or Mombasa, though a lot longer than on St. Lawrence Island or Novaya Zemlya.
I am always surprised when people moan about how dark the winter gets. I rarely notice. And I'm the one without central heating, motorized transport or mains electricity. One reason for not worrying about it is that I spend a lot of time outdoors and am forced to deal with what comes my way. Whining about nature would sort of invalidate every single choice I've taken the last fifteen years.
But the fact that I can to some extent choose my own working hours is probably at least as important. As this picture indicates, I'm dicking around and looking at sunrises at a time when almost everybody else is at work, so no reason to feel all high and superior.
