Canon 100-400mm 4.5 L IS

Exposure not recorded

"Looking north across from the harbour at Stykkishólmur, on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, towards the West Fjords. This shot was taken at midnight, about half an hour before the sun set. Lying just south of the Arctic Circle, in mid-summer the sun only goes below the horizon at night for about an hour, before it rises again not far from where it has just set!"
