Not quite sunset over the Baltic

At this time of year, at this latitude, “sunset” is a rather diffuse business. Sometime after 10 pm the sun dips below the horizon a little east of North and then appears again around 3 am a little south of East.

These were taken on the Baltic (latitude c. 59.7ºN), while just leaving the Stockholm archipelago, looking roughly North-North-West at about 9pm.

Summer’s not over, but the days are getting shorter again.
