A Calm Summer Night

The Finnish summer makes you wanna stay up all night – every night. That's why Finns sleep way too few hours in the summer. After sunset the sky is orange/pink/blue/yellow for hours until the sun rises again a few hours later.

We are now heading towards darker times and there's an end to everything, even the light nights. With a clear sky there is no total darkness at night where I live until mid August.

These photos were taken on 29 July at the darkest point of the night. It was calm and quiet and stunningly beautiful. If you ever visit Finland in summer, be sure to stay up until sunrise at least once!
