new dawn, same old town

We're a month from Midsummer and the nights are longer already. But if you find an elevated position and look straight north at midnight you'll still see a touch of blue. The promise of a new dawn approaching. Here's a familiar sight, the Old Town as seen from Slussen a couple of nights ago.

Oj, vilket snyggt foto! Själv har jag knappt vistats i Sthlm sen semestern började för några veckor sen, så jag har nästan glömt bort hur vackert det är där med stadens alla kvällsljus.

I was a bit surprised to find out that it's still not quite dark at midnight. Incidentally, by the term "midnight" I'm referring to the moment half-way between sunset and sunrise. Due to Daylight Savings' Time this occurs roughly at 1AM.

Château-Gontierdailyphoto: I was glad to find some light still around at that hour.

Thanks, Tammy!

Halcyon: I've got more coming up so I'm glad you enjoy them! ;)

babooshka: Thanks. As you've probably figured out by now, this is my time of day. Even more so these weeks when we're in the midst of heat wave.

Appreciate that, JM.

• Eliane • : Haven't seen that film but on this particular day there certainly wasn't any sleep until 6AM!

Distinctly megavocabularistic as always, Coltrane_lives! ;)

Helena/Bildbloggerian: Tack, jag lovade mig själv att det skulle bli mycket nattfoto den här sommaren och dessbättre har prognosen slagit in. Vädret har gett en del draghjälp, förstås. Har tidigare levt i tron att det inte finns något läckert skymningsljus mitt i sommaren men om man bara bortser från petitesser som "sista pendeln hem" och liknande så funkar det hur bra som helst... Sent blir det.

Thanks all for commenting!

The digital dated code in the lower right corner is a grand touch.

Such a modern world.

Missing Stockholm very much.

One of my favourite views/parts in Stockholm, equally stunning by night it seems. Great pic!
