The Summer Solstice went out with a bang last night at Saltburn. I was going to crop the sky a little but that is what the image is all about, so left it as shot.

Hope you all got the shots you wanted and thanks as always for your c&c's.

Have a great day and this gorgeous weather.

Regards
John

Lucky you. For me it was an overcast day. I was asleep by 11-00 pm but my wife said it was a lovely evening and I missed it. For us it is still light at 11-30 pm.

That was pretty much the sky above the poppy field I was in in N Yorks too. I do think it suits your setting rather better Smile
