This was shot fairly far north, so this is as dark as it gets. You can still shoot handheld, with acceptable shutter speeds, apertures and ISO settings, 24 hours a day. At the far north they still have midnight sun. But further south, where I´m heading, it is getting quite a bit darker now.
If anyone wants exceptional light and exceptional scenery to shoot, I can really recommend the north of Norway. And this year, the weather has been phenomenal.
+1 on the exceptional scenery, and +1 for the weather this summer - seems like all of Scandinavia has had exceptionally hot and sunny weather this summer
