Midnight sun in Advent Bay, Spitzbergen, Norway (c. 1890).

In recognition of the Winter Solstice, a couple more photochrom prints from the Library of Congress collection. And some music…

Midnight Sun by Lionel Hampton | Midnight Sun (song version) by Nancy Wilson.

    This version always gets me:

    Midnight Sun by June Christy

    Lovely music. (Also the title of a novel by Ramsey Campbell: a horror novel with no violence. It’s like Twin Peaks with snow.)

    Matthew: That’s a great one as well. Until I started searching I hadn’t realised there were so many cover versions. I know it mainly from Lionel Hampton’s original.

    John: That’s one of Ramsey’s I still haven’t read.

    What absolutely gorgeous images. A blessed Solstice to you!

    PS I love June Christy, and have always adored the way she sings the phrase “alabaster palace” in that song. Sigh…
