It's that time of year again. The nights are bright and filled with magic, especially when the weather is calm.

I'm going to share with you a few photos from our evening walk on Friday night ..... between 10 and 11 pm.

This is the lake Hvaleyrarvatn, just outside my town. It's only about 10 min. drive so we go there quite often ....

The lupines are in full bloom now and paint the hillsides blue.

Thanks Janet :-)

Here's what the sky looked like between sunset and sunrise ..... it was on fire the entire 3 hours while the sun dipped below the horizon .....

This was taken around 3 am, just before sunrise ...

WOW The water looks like glass. I've always loved when the sky is red or pink. You can't help but get a waybigo smile on your face when you see it that way.

The volcano sleeps, for now at least ..... it rumbled a bit a few weeks ago, but hasn't stirred in a while. The ash however is blowing all over the southern part of the country ..... we've had more ash fall here after it stopped than during the eruption. Still it's only been a dusting, nothing compared to what those closer to the volcano have had to endure.

Here's another one looking toward Reykjavík that same night:

Thanks for the update on the volcano. I'm glad you all didn't get more dust than you did. I feel for the folks that got the brunt of it.

I think that last photo was one of the prettiest. Your country is gorgeous Rann. Thanks for sharing these late night photos.

Hey Rann,
Just catching up with you! Absolutely beautiful pictures and you are right, amazing!
Glad the volcano is still sleeping but sad you getting ash still. How are the farmers etc doing with the clean up where the worst of it was?
In my Hawaii thread, Carol is talking about a volcano acting up there. The carbon dioxide, I think you said, they call VOG.

Hi Rann,

Absolutely beautiful pictures of your beautiful environment! Thinking of you with your long days as we move towards solstice and then start moving to longer nights. And you are up taking pictures at 3 a.m.? You are a better woman than I am (and younger too !).
