Summer/Solstice/Sunset/Schwinn Summer Solstice arrived at 4:14 CDT this morning Le Tour facing south — view due west Le Tour facing north — view due west Happy Summer Solstice Solstice Sunset through trees
Foggy morning precluded any chance of a Solstice Sunrise photo Sun at 1200 hours as high as it will get this day 26.5 degrees above the horizon @ 40 degrees North Long noon time shadow Solstice Sunset Low angle rays glowing in the greenhouse
The marker pin I use finally made it to the top of the analemma indicating the first day of astronomical summer. The photo was taken on the 19th due to the possibility of clouds and rain on the 20th. Actually, at 4:43 PM, CDT, when the event occurred, thunderstorms entered the area. So give or … Continue reading "Summer Solstice Vermilion County"
No sun to be seen today, no shadows, no sunrise, no sunset, everything veiled in rain clouds, so I figured it wouldn’t make much difference at what time or in which direction I took my pictures to mark the day with the longest period of daylight. We waited all day for it to stop raining … Continue reading "Summer Solstice Challenge 2020"
I tried to get a summer picture at the same place – but couldn’t see the sun! So I have to stand further back. Brompton is in there standing against the house. Thank you all for your recent comments. Our area has no fires at the moment but friends both here is Tasmania and on … Continue reading "Solstice in Tasmania"
I admit that I didn’t think that much about the technical aspects of solstice today – I just pointed the camera west toward the sea and took my best shot. I should at least get some credit for being aware that it was solstice though. I had my mind on other things, anyway. Foremost among … Continue reading "A La Jolla Solstice"
This is about a ten-minute ride from home. Had to think about where I would best view the sun sinking below the horizon. We have lots of forests here but not many views to where the sky and earth meet, too many trees. Since sunrise was at 5:14 am and sunset at 9:17 pm, I … Continue reading "Summer Solstice in Bavaria – a few days early"
There goes the sun and here comes another frosty night. I still haven’t managed to spot an “old and new” photo opportunity. Sorry. I have seen some possibilities but they didn’t work out picture-wise. Perhaps I am too busy keeping warm!! Still, there are a few days to go yet.
It’s been cloudy or I’ve been asleep or I just plain missed it – but yesterday I managed a sunset picture. Our driveway heads somewhat east / west so I took the shot there. I will probably have to walk a bit further along to get the winter solstice picture!
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 … Continue reading "Unexpectedly a Solstice to Photo"
I was a little under the weather on the 21st so didn’t make it out. However, everyone under the sun was posting amazing sunset and sunrise photos on FB and other social media. As I sat on my couch last night…….I could see the color building from our window and decided I needed to get … Continue reading "A Day Late But Not A Dollar Short……Solstice Sunset"
So I’m at least close. I got a photo of nearly the sunrise (I’m about 45 minutes late), on a nearly east/west road (off by about 15 degrees), on nearly the solstice (one day late). The photo is taken biking east along the Xindian River near Bitan Scenic Area, just south of Taipei. There’s a … Continue reading "Winter solstice in Taipei"
Just got a shot of the sun as it disappears on the horizon here in Conil, Spain on December 21 for the Solstice Challenge. In Munich I would have had my bicycle and perhaps a street at the right angle, but I doubt the sun would have been out. Only rain and clouds there! Happy … Continue reading "Winter Solstice Challenge – without bike and road"
Looking at the Analemma, the sun is so close to 23.5 S Latitude any date between now and January 1st would be a good time for a photo as weather/clouds allow. Just over a week until the Solstice. As we can see by the analemma the direct ray of the sun is very nearly at … Continue reading "Solstice Challenge (Updated)"
