Sun goes down over the mobile communications mast of Hallila.
There's something special on midsummer sunsets. Sun goes down very slowly around 11 PM and gives plenty of of time to various colours in the sky.

Ompa KAMALAN kaunis kuva :D kjeh kjeh kjhe :D
I simply love the colours of the sky, the way it is all slowly fading out and yet turning into a distinct texture. I also really like the way you have placed the sun and how the halo is at the bottom of the communication mast. I just wish it'd be exactly at the bottom (but then again, that's me just being impossible).
The strip of land just at the bottom is excellent, the colours perfect and the sky just magnificent. This is an amazingly serene shot of our sometimes ugly (steel construction) yet always magnificent world. Congrats on this sighting :D

Kari , colours in your sunsets are great , in this one the red gradient to blue is very fine .

Your passion for sunsets is very clear indeed and how fortunate you are to be able to photograph themn at leisure like that (rather unlike a Mediterranean sunset where the sun disappears before you've taken off your lenscap - LOL!) I like the colours and the gradients here. Like Julia, I am inpressed with the way you have taken a manufactured human intrusion and turned it into an asset. TFS

There are some wonderful colours and textures in the sky. I should imagine there is a glow on the horizon most of the night in June. Well placed sun and mast.

I like the way you have positioned the sun right behind the tower. Incredible that it is 11.00PM. In Asia here we do not get such things. A excellent composition. It is a little unfortunate that there is a short pole sticking out from the left side of the shot but these are some things that we cannot avoide sometimes. Was it possible for you to get a little higher at that point? That would have brought everything in the foreground down to below the hills in the horizon and cleared the sky.
