Beautiful capture of notilucent clouds. The reason it's still light is that the set sun is shining on the underside of clouds that are up to 80 kilometers above the Earth's surface. For more info:

Spectacular photo!!! These clouds are actually called Noctilucent clouds, or Polar Mesospheric Clouds, and are made of crystals of water ice. These clouds are located in the Mesopause which is the coldest place on earth and reflect the sun's light after it has set...

What you're seeing here is a great display of Noctilucent Clouds. See Google for more information. They're basically very high altitude clouds only visible when the sun is below the horizon.
