One of the remarkable things about camping in the arctic is the long evening light with rich colors and long shadows. Where else can you watch the sunset for 3 hours, only to watch it begin rising again immediately?
Early August is a time between the explosion of spring flowers, and the yellows and reds of autumn. At this time of year, with a subtle color palette, the long evening light makes the the tundra shine.
