Last Thursday the northern hemisphere had its longest day of the year.

All week I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to take a photo of the relatively bright midnight sky we get here in Northern Germany at the moment. But as fate goes, clouds were covering the sky every night.

Last night on the way back from Kiel I finally got the chance to capture our midnight sun, which is merely a glow in the north. To my surprise the St. Petri cathedral in Schleswig was lit as well – photographer’s luck!

The photo was taken at 11:59 pm.
