Night has gone

Images from an almost midnight bike ride through Helsinki.

The night has almost gone for the next few months. Even as I got home, just ten minutes before midnight, there was still an orange scum in the northern sky. It is still quite cool, about 6 degrees tonight, but the sky was cloudless and you can feel the northern summer is right around the corner.

It's really mellow cycling at this time; no one else around, virtually no cars on the roads. The birch aren't releasing pollen as well, so no hay fever sneezing either. But nature is so busy at this time of year, the birds still sing in the twilight.
