The sunset is not far from here in the north, nor the midnight sun, so we have more and more nights like this, coming.

These pictures were taken near Reinsnes in Sortland, Vesterålen, Northern Norway, 13 June 2014. It was a lovely evening, and the water was like a mirror, and reflected the clouds...
