Land of the Simmer Dim

Land of the Simmer Dim

This shot was taken at midnight last tuesday. The sun doesn't reach its lowest point until 1am during British Summer Time, but I thought the amount of available light was remarkable. Two weeks after the longest day you could certainly read a newspaper outside at 12.30am. In Shetland we call this the 'simmer dim' - the twilight following the 19 hours of mid-summer daylight.
