Arches National Park - Moab Utah


Just returned from a road trip to Utah. This was taken on the first night after a 1 1/2 mile hike to the arch on the night of the summer solstice and one night shy of a full moon.

At the Montage

Taken with 14-24mm, ISO 32, F/22, 0.8sec

[confession] The river is in Orange, Massachusetts and the fireworks were taken in Rutland, Vermont!

As I look out of my window there may well be a sunset tonight although I doubt it will rival last years.Heres a look back one year.

The sky colouring has not been changed,this is how it was on the evening.

Far too busy up at Chesterton Windmill this evening, but I guess that's to be expected... I took this from the bottom of the hill. The fields of crops make for nice lines!


Sunset at 00.30am on 22nd June 2013

Taken at 00.45am.

Yesterday was the longest day of the year & also Father’s day in Ireland.

After spending a lovely afternoon with my girls and hubby I went out to get last rays of the day.

Unfortunately the weather on the west coast wasn’t so good but that didn’t stop me from driving down to Doolin, Co.Clare in the hope that the rain would stop and I could get a few shots.

I did manage to get a few shots between rain shows and strong wind.

Maybe next year it will be a perfect sunset on the longest day of the year .

After my trip to Heligan I decided to drive over to the North Coast and take in a Summer Solstice Sunset, it was a long day but worth it in the end, there were quite a few togs around this part of the coast, I reckon they must have known something I didn't! ;)

As sunset approached, the clouds all but vanished. Not easy to shoot into the sun but I had to capture it setting on the longest day.

Happy summer solstice (in the northern hemisphere) and winter solstice (in the southern hemisphere). Nothing says summer to me more than warm orange and hot red.


I love what alight (Kelly) writes on her post today, and, with her permission, I copy it here:

solstice happens at the same instant for everyone everywhere on Earth (warms my heart :)

I invite you to stroll through My Galleries.


I sat on a hill for over an hour watching the sun set. I've got around 50 images. This was so far the only that made me satisfied. My eyes are tired. More too come.

Porkeri is a village in the Faroe Islands, situated north of Vágur on Suðuroy's east coast. As of 2004 it had a population of 332. It is located at61°28′59″N 6°44′36″W / 61.48306°N 6.74333°W / 61.48306; -6.74333.


Porkeri has been inhabited at least as early as the 14th century.


The wooden church is from 1847 and contains things donated by seamen who survived lethal storms on the sea, maintaining the tradition of almissu (seamen in danger promised - according to Nordic tradition - to donate churches, the material or such to God if they got back home alive).


In 1984 a new school was built in the village. It is built in a modern Faroese style and has grass on the roof. The old school in Porkeri was built in 1888. It was used as such for 96 years. It is now owned by "Porkeris Bygdasavn" which is a museum. The village also has a church, Porkeri Church with a graveyard.


Tradition says that once in the old days a dispute of field boundaries between Porkeri and the neighbouring village Hov was sorted out by a walking-race between one man from each village.


It's all down hill from here. LOL

Sunset at Lake Tahoe seen from the Nevada shoreline as the sun drifts quietly done on the summer night. High clouds break up the ligiht and each second contains its own beauty. The best entertainment isn't in the Casinos it at the beach where you quietly sit and contempate natures daily beauty as you listen to the waves lap on the sand and the colors dance over the sky as mother nature paints her evening picture. TIme slows down and for a short while all is well. Blessings.

Today is officially the first day of summer - so sit back & relax...

also, this year's summer solstice will be followed by the year's largest supermoon!


HFF & enjoy the weekend!
