Long Sunlit Days

Today is the "longest" day of the year - the day with the most sunlight hours.

I love these long days... though it's hard for me to stay awake for them all!

 At 7 pm - as in the picture - I'm enjoying the long evening light...

But I'm having trouble with 4 am dawn. By 6, when I'm ready to get up, I've missed seeing the sunrise. The day is already bright!

My photo faces west - and the sun is slowly moving to the right (to the north) before it sets.

One of my daughter's friends, currently in Iceland, is posting photos on Instagram.

I particularly enjoyed this one - and the comment, "Yes, it's almost midnight in Iceland."

I didn't realize that Iceland is that far north...

These days of "midnight sun" would be the perfect time of year to be there!
