Photographer's Note

10 pm on midsummer evening and all over Finland the midsummer bonfire, called juhanus kokko, is lit up to celebrate the longest day of the year. In a country with long, cold and dark winters, the short summer has a very high meaning and is thus accordingly celebrated. This years Juhannus was special, being the coldest since more than 40 years with temperatures around 8C, there was even some snow in some parts of Finland. Luckily enough summer picked up later with a long spell of sunny and hot days that again broke all records.
