I must have accrued a small credit of positive karma when we got to Látrabjarg, for we were fortunate to spend some glorious moments in the company of the midnight sun. Látrabjarg is Iceland‘s (and Europe’s) westernmost point and one of the world’s great bird cliffs.
In the summer months at these high latitudes, the sun lingers over the horizon for quite a while around midnight, showering upon the landscape an ethereal stream of honey-dipped photons. It makes for a scene that is pure manna to just about anyone with a soul.
The photographs in this post summarize our magical night out in Látrabjarg earlier this June.
