Solstice



This is what the sunset looked like at midnight last night – the summer solstice, longest day of the year. A couple of minutes later it had dipped below the horizon, where it would hover before rising again just three hours later. Because the sun never really goes far below that point, it doesn’t get dark up here at this time of year. Think this photo, minus the bright glow, and you have an approximation of how dark it becomes.

THE SUN HAS NOT YET LEFT US…
And just this morning I cycled out to where I took that photo last night. It was beautiful, brilliant sunshine, crystalline light, a cool refreshing breeze coming off the ocean. Weatherman sez we’re in for showers again later today, so best to enjoy this brief respite from the rain while we can. Temps right now are 10°C and sunrise this morning was at 02.55 while sunset will be at 24.05 tomorrow.
