Happy solstice to you to! I went to Stonehenge 2 years ago for the Solstice(Stonehenge is only open to the public for 2 days a year), and whilst it was a bit disappointing that it was cloudy, so the sunrise was just a slight decrease in darkness rather than "an event", it was still a mystic experience, even with 10,000 other people around at the same time!

Like a whale who would have left the sea to be a land one. Impressive rocky mass & light touching the great beast nose. I enjoy your compo.

What a great image, Jason. This reminds me of our being in Fairbanks, AK, in 1999 on this date. We took photos at midnight with no flash. Thanks for the good memory!
