"In the light of the North distances deceive. The stationary man watches the ship depart so slowly that the steely band of water before it can barely be perceived to extend. The clarity of the Arctic air is such that even when the ship is far off, sails, masts, details stand out sharp to the eye as if they were still close in, and he has the impression that he could yell out and call back a boat long after all on board are out of earshot."

Georgina Harding, in The Solitude Of Thomas Cave, Bloomsbury, 2007.
