Tramonto di mezza estate.


Buongiorno cari amici e benvenuti nella terra delle notti senza notte…(in estate).  Yöton l’espressione che usano i finlandesi,  esprime proprio questo concetto.  In questo momento dell’anno la notte non arriva per niente in tutta la Scandinavia.  A seconda della latitudine,  il fenomeno dura piu’ o meno a lungo:  nell’estremo nord per un mese il sole non va proprio sotto l’orizzonte,  per cui ci si vede benissimo e “notte” e’ una parola astratta e lontana.  A Somero il sole va sotto l’orizzonte verso le 23.30 ma segue solo un lungo crepuscolo che ci collega direttamente all’aurora del giorno dopo.

Per cui ci accontentiamo di qualche tramonto pittoresco:  come questo nei miei scatti.







Midsummer Sunset.  

Hello desr friends and welcome to the land of the nights without night…(in summer).   The Finnish phrase:  Yöton yö cleverly expresses this idea.  In this moment of the year,  night does not fall at all in Scandinavia.   How long this phenomenon persists depends on your latitude:  in the very north for one month now the sun will not go below the horizon,  so you can do many daytime activities and “night” is just an abstract concept.  In Somero the sun sets at about 11.30 p.m.,  but a long twilight just connects today’s eve to tomorrow’s dawn.

Therefore we must be happy just with picturesque sunsets,  just like this one in my shots.

  1. Beautiful midsummer sunset! I stayed a few days in the north of Finland, Kempele one summer and the night there was really nightless 🙂

  2. Hello,

    Beautiful sky and reflections. I love the horse, so pretty. I would need to cover my eyes to sleep, I need the darkness of night. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!
