Unexpectedly a Solstice to Photo

In our little part of the world the forecast was for heavy cloud and light winds all day.

Surprisingly after our visitor left at midday the clouds slowly began to clear, at 15:30 it was time to pop out with the camera.

Not sure if I’m too late to qualify?

View west across the Abingdon’s Southern Park.

A mile further on into town and all that was left was the afterglow.

Distance – 4 miles.

Journey – Solo.

Bike – Dawes Galaxy.

    Beautiful photos! Thanks! It doesnt take long for the sun to sink below the horizon.
    Not too late at all, the analemma shows the direct ray still hovering very near 23.5 South.
    (Several trips south of town were made to capture the solstice photos I have — none of which were on the actual date due to clouds.)
    Thanks for the effort. Hope you are having a good Holiday Season.

    I like the afterglow… though it looks cold! I always hated the early spring days on a tour when the clouds stuck around all day keeping temps down but then cleared out at night to let the overnight temps really sink!
