Gävle (Sweden) Old Town (gamla stan)

Gävle Sweden

Old Town at summer's dawn -- Gävle, Sweden

I took today’s photo at 2:29 a.m. in early July in the farthest place north I’ve ever been–Gävle, Sweden. I had no tripod so there are no photographic tricks of light here. The shutter on my D7000 remained open for a mere 1/200th of a second. The sky never became totally dark on this evening/morning. A long sunset turns into a long sunrise this far north in the summer. I was walking back to my hotel through Gamla Stan, Gävle’s “Old Town”, from the Getaway Rock Festival.

The Old Town of Gävle contains many buildings from the 17th Century and the cobble stone streets are also from that time period.
