Tramonto di mezza estate.


seq (6)

Qui nel nord Europa in estate ci si deve accontentare del tramonto,  in quanto la notte non arriva proprio e nemmeno compaiono le stelle.  Vi propongo un tramonto di fine giugno con mezza luna:  almeno quella si vede!  Tutto e’ cominciato da una passeggiata nel bosco di fronte a casa dopo cena…

Come ha detto giustamente l’amica Paola,  venuta a trovarmi qualche anno fa a luglio:  “L’unica cosa che non ho visto in Finlandia sono le stelle!”

Midsummer sunset.        Here in the north in summer we can enjoy colourful sunsets,  but we cannot see stars in the sky because there is no night – no darkness.  Today I’ll share with you a few shots of a midsummer sunset,  during a walk through the forest opposite our house.  At least we see the moon…

As my friend Paola commented upon her visit to me one July:  “The only thing that I could not see in Finland is the stars!”

  1. The colourful evening sky shots are beautiful. A fascinating thought about not seeing the stars up in the North. However, it’s comforting to see the moon. Wishing you a good weekend.


  2. Would like to be in the North, right now (it’s in the 90 degr. weather right now, even before noon) – beautiful and mysterious captures of the forest and the moon – beautiful. Many thanks for sharing these wonders of nature with All Seasons!
    Sorry you cannot see the stars – on clear nights we see millions right above our house – breath taking! Have a lovely week:)

  3. Beautiful photos!The past week, I’ve seen the moon in the afternoon. I have yet to experience being in a place where there is no night. It would definitely be something to get used to.

  4. Oh yes! The night without night is something unique: your body is energetic even if you sleep only a few hours and you must remember to have dinner! All the opposite of winter. Thanks for you visit, Susan, have a good week!
