White Nights

Looking back over Lake Lights, I remembered that we were in St Petersburg, Russia in 2011 for White Nights, the longest days of the year around the Summer Solstice, when the sun shines through the whole night.

This is our first night in St. Petersburg, about 10:00 pm, when we walked over to see the Neva for the first time.






A few nights later, we were in the St Petersburg Symphony Hall.  Here we are at intermission, around 9:30 pm (just having heard an amazing Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto 3), with the sunlight streaming through the windows.





And then walking back to the hotel (in sunglasses) sometime between 11:00 pm and midnight.
