This picture painted in 1908 by the Danish painter Harald Slott Georg Moller, is precisely the intense atmosphere I associate with midsummer.
I think it is the finest evening of the year.

    • Hi Robert. It’s a moody scenario. The bonfires and the sea on a summer evening. And history adds a whole new perspective to the experience.
      In the Viking Age burial mounds were used as an alarm system with large bonfires on top.
      It is easy to imagine a large Viking ship sailing up the fjord.
      All the best,
