12:30 at night in Reykjavik

Keflavik Airport. 12:30AM.  10 June 2016.
The sun never sets on the Icelandic Empire.  At least not in June.  Reyjavik is just a bit below the Arctic Circle, so around the time of the summer solstice, it's never dark.  Lose the illusion of a hot sun beating down on Iceland 24/7 for several weeks.  It does get dusky, however.

Above is the main terminal for Reykjavik's Keflavik Airport, shot at about 12:30AM.  Obviously, it is not mid-day in that picture.  But but it's not night.  And note the artistic rendering of a giant eagle's egg at the front.  (I thought it was an olive -- one of those famous Icelandic olives -- but no it's an egg with an eglet starting to break through.  Not a pimiento.)

This is the street in front of my hotel.  At dawn.  1:00AM.
