Late night viewing

Sun above the mountain at local midnight.

The sky this evening was clear of cloud; the sun was out and is high enough still to not disappear behind the mountains.  I managed to take a picture at local midnight (about 11.30pm).

At such high latitudes, the sun falls at a really shallow angle and runs a line skimming across the ridge of the mountains for a few hours, before rising up again for another day.

I have seen it a few times now and frankly, it is still just plain weird,
