Baltic Sunset


The local time of this shot was 23:00 hrs!

Yes, the sun was just beginning to set.  Though this was not the land of the midnight sun,  we were really not that far away from the edge of the Artic Circle.

I was amazed how calm the Baltic was as we were sailing just out of Stockholm, Sweden.  The under lighting of the clouds was amazing.  I found myself shooting shot after shot … even after the sunset it stayed fairly light until about 01:00 hours local time.  This fact made me consider … what is it like in the middle of the winter?
