Midsummer Midnight

For years I've been telling people about the amazing midsummer nights here in northern Scotland. There's a Scottish word for it - "gloaming", the twilight time between sunset and complete darkness. Well... in mid summer there is no complete darkness up here, but I've never been able to photograph it as most times midsummer has been cloudy.

But this past week, we have had perfectly clear skies. :) Here's a patched together view of the Northern horizon from where we live. It's a bit blurry as I am taking a zoom shot.  The time was just after midnight and the date was the 22 of June. You'll need to click on the photo to enlarge.
