Whilst cruising off the North Coast of Iceland we experienced the first of many midnight suns. The sun at this stage had reached an elevation of just 2.57º at sunset and then began to rise again. The sun’s heading was close to due North at 354.2º. This gave you a few hours of golden light. The only problem was that you kept wanting to capture images into the early hours of the morning. This one was captured at 01:08. You certainly could not gauge the direction of the western compass point by the setting sun. Felt quite weird.
