Summer Solstice 2008

Yesterday was Midsummer Day and a holiday here, but this celebration hasn’t been so festive as the day before which is called the Midsummer Eve. It’s a celebration of dance around a flower-decorated pole, while the dancers wear a summer wreath on the head. But I’m not keen on that cos there’s something I always look forward to on midsummer day – the summer solstice – the longest day and shortest night happens. I always took a picture of how bright it is at 10.00-11.00 in the evening. This time, I was lucky cos no rain and I even captured a lone bird in the bright sky. :-)

    BK – Thanks!

    Femikey – I’ve checked the tag. Thanks a lot for tagging me.

    Rozella – Yes, indeed. That’s how it is here in summertime. :-)

    Farah – I took that pic at 10.30pm. Yes, it’s kind of awkward to greet good evening or good night when the sun is still up. I have problems sleeping, too, hehehe. Sweden, as others call it, is the land of the midnight sun.
