Iceland Midnight Sun

Yeah, my first blog request!  Thanks to Bubu for asking about photos of the midnight sun in Iceland in the comments to his post about Iceland.  I’m not honestly sure how midnight sun is defined, so I hope this qualifies!  When we were there at the end of May, the sun set about 11:30 pm and rose at about 3:30 am.  However, it never really got dark as you can kind of see from the last photo. Pretty cool, but remember the opposite is true in the winter!

This photo was taken in Reykjavik about 9:35 pm.

Waterfall Photo

This photo of Skógafoss Waterfall was taken at 10:20 pm.

Photo of Iceland

This photo was taken a few km north of Reykjavik at 12:40 am. So although you can’t actually see the sun, it’s still light out.

I was really happy to get this request for a post topic.  Let me know in a comment if you have any requests for future posts!
