    I just noticed the Daylight Saving Bill's due for it's third reading in parliament on 20 Jan. Apart from the general environmental and lifestyle benefits, it seems a good thing from an outdoor photography point of view - more evening light and later sunrises. So it seems worth supporting IMO.

    I don't see any benefit at all. If you want to benefit from daylight earlier in the day, get up earlier.

    I work for an American company, and my boss and a lot of my organisation is on the west coast. I am already 8 hours ahead of them, I don't want to be 9 hours ahead...

    Later sunrises mean that the average Joe is less likely to be able to photograph them because you have less time before starting work - in winter you will have no time at all. Where is the benefit?
    And in winter, why do longer evenings matter when it gets dark before the end of the working day anyway?

    Just me then Smile Personally speaking I need to cover until around 5pm in the office for at least part of the week, so extra daylight after that would be really welcome. Sunrise shots have to be done when I'm not going into the office anyway - so a slightly later start would be welcome.

    Oh no no no..... I wish they would stop doing the +1 hour, let alone +2 and +1.
    Just leave time alone.

    Quite.

    Whatever they settle upon, just leave it at that.
    A few months down the line and certainly by next winter, it will have been forgotten about and we'll all just get on with our lives accordingly.

    More to the point, what naughty legislation are the Gov hoping to sneak in un-noticed while the country is being sidetracked by daylight saving and how good the Mac is compared to PC.

    It may be a photo site but this is the healthy debate forum, which was set up for exactly this kind of thing.
