Midnight Sun

Our sojourn in the northern fjords of Iceland has coincided with clear skies. At these latitudes, within a stone’s throw of the Arctic Circle, the golden light of the sun lingers for almost an hour. It is a marvelous spectacle, and the quality of the light otherworldly.

Last night the skies lit up over Skjálfandi Bay near Húsavík. Also seen to the left is Lundey (“Puffin Island”).

A few days earlier, a drive along Skagafjörður was richly rewarded.
