Vermilion Solstice

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

Low angle rays glowing in the greenhouse

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    I always love your solstice photos. I don’t get much chance to take one and I suppose that is because I don’t focus on it when there might be a shot available. Keep trying I tell myself. ONe day, one day.

    Thanks!
    There won’t be much change in the sun’s position for several days now, so there is still an opportunity for a photo.
    Only the most obsessive of the obsessive ‘might’ notice a difference of half a degree or so . . . . .

    Oh, I forgot! I’ll have to look back over today’s photos to see if anything was relevant.

    Lucky you that the sun came out! A solstice sunset is certainly a rarity, at least in winter!
