I had in mind to do a few photos for summer solstice. It turned out to be a challenge that beat me.
I looked out at midnight the night before the solstice. There was an excellent photo. Just what I wanted. To the north, north west was light with a row of spruce trees that would how up black.
So the next night I was up, not at midnight though. It was cloudy.
I prepared to try again last night so I set my camera out. Rats! I woke up at 4:15 AM. Well , I'm up anyway so I might as well take a few shots.
For some reason I did not have my glasses on! So this photo is badly out of focus. So remember next time. Wear your glasses.
So this is 4:15 AM looking mostly north and a little to the east.
Now I have to remember to include the photo!
