Somewhat belated I am now at the near-finish of my summernight-series. The next two panos will show the lake Arresø, the largest lake in Denmark. There are not any obvious viewpoints to showcase this lake, but I hope to show more from here sooner. At 40 km² it's between the size of Plauer See and Ammersee in Germany, for comparison.

At this date and location, the sunrise was at 04:25, so here at 03:22 it is 6° under the horizon. The civil twilight is back, and in accordance hereby, the details in the landscape is beginning to show clearly.

Pano made from 8 pics (RAW), tripod, Canon 6D, 70-200mm@78mm, iso-1600, f/4, 1/10 sec, developed in DPP (cloudy, neutral, periphal illumination, moderate sharpness), stitched in PTGui pro, downscaling and sharpening in Irfanview.


Thanks a lot, Jan. 
Your photos remind me of the feelings I recently experienced during my short holiday in Stockholm, at the end of June. One of the most intense and exciting feelings was that the daylight never disappeared completely. Seeing the sun already shining at four o'clock a. m. is such a "big north" thing for a Mediterranean like me. At the same time, however, I also thought about how I could feel living in the north during the winter ... And I thought even if I would ever be able to do so. Sooner or later I will try. Thanks for your panoramas.
Ciao, Alvise

@Alvise, thank you for the comment. It was thoughts like yours I tried to pack into the series. About winterdarkness; that is surely sometimes depressing. I once read of a study of winterdepression in northern Norway. Interestingly, it showed no difference in occurance in groups of people having lived there through generations, respectively new settlers. But the good thing is, that when the light is there, it is beautiful the whole time, since the sun doesn't get over 15° over the horizon for 2,5 months.

Wouldn't have thought that a pano showing twilight and nothing much else would work so well. Cheers, Martin
