The summer solstice

Tonight was the shortest night of the year – summer solstice.  Sunset was at 23:55 and sunrise at 2:57. These are nights full of colour when the sun is setting and rising so soon afterwards. This photo was taken at 2:30 in Selfoss, South Iceland, north over Ölfusá River. There is more or less daylight all night and does not get totally dark until July 20.
