Bit of a grey misty day yesterday and today, though still mild. Although I witnessed a beautiful misty sunset over a loch while out "in the country" for dinner with friends". But to remind myself of the sun thought I'd share some of this summer's sunsets with you. These photos were taken by my friend Wendy when she visited earlier this year.
As you can see the sun is setting over to the right hand side of the photo. Now in September it is setting well over to the left just behind the headland there in the photo below left.
Sunrise is at 06.35 and sunset at 19.40 (BST). This compares with 06.31 and 19.21 in London. From about March onwards we get more daylight in Orkney than those in the south of the UK, but at this time of the year you can see we are about the same, and by mid-winter we get about two hours less daylight - with sunrise here being about 9.15 and sunset at 15.15! Then I look forward to the next long summer days!
