Summer solstice at the top of the world

I took these photos on the summer solstice, June 21, at around 11:40 pm.  I couldn't bring myself to stay up until midnight... the longest day of the year is almost 4 months long in Grise Fiord, so it's hard to get too excited about it when you are two months into it, the sun last set on April 23.  But still... considering we are surrounded by mountains to the west and north, it's pretty darn sunny here in town at almost midnight.

The one below is looking northeast... not to much shadow, that sun is pretty high for an arctic sun.
