It’s hard to gauge the time when the sun rises at 4:40 and sets at 22:12. What makes it even more difficult is that it remains light long after the sun has set. So it feels perfectly normal to go for a walk, when in the winter you might be considering bed. In the winter you feel you want to draw the curtains long before 5:00pm, to shut out the darkness. However, on an evening like this, you feel that you want to make the most of the light.
I find it hard to resist the temptation to pick up the camera and head for the pier. So it was this evening, just before 10:00pm we made our way there. Our arrival was timely. The sun was about to drop below the horizon. Gulls were swooping and swirling overhead – the hope was that we might capture them on the camera.
The sight was a joy to behold and to remember.
And still the curtains are open – and it’s almost 11:00pm
