Midnight on a Siberian summer's eve

Reindeer are herded both night and day. This proves a lot of work but the summer offers 24 hours of day light. While we visited the tribe the sun set for two hours before resurfacing only slightly further along the horizon. The tribe of 11 families live together managing approximately 2,000 Reindeer divided to around 200 per family.
