The Land of Midnight Sun

This photo was taken in Voss, a small town of Norway, almost at midnight, though you can find some light in the sky. In pick summer the sunlight is more than this and if we go further north the Sun can be seen in midnight; that’s the reason Norway is called
“The Land of Midnight Sun”.
What I like in this photo is the illuminating street lights, fascinating and glowing like candle sticks. The Voss railway station is visible in right side.

I love this picture. The sky at midnight is a strange blue and beautiful. Have you managed to see the northern lights anytime? Aurora borealis :)
