9pm and it's still light out!

And the sky is beautiful. I get amazing sun rises and sun sets here. My top floor window faces North so I get a panorama of both worlds.
Here's a few -

Today's -



The other week -

Very pretty!

I had the depressing realisation that in just over a month the days will begin to get shorter again!

I also get light on a night for about 15 mins longer than you London lot :p




Something Special.

I love long days, they make me happy.



♥ .I'm going to fall like I don't need saving. ♥
...My smile's just the armour I built when I was alone...

There was some part of me that hurt so badly, that I wouldn't ever be able to forget it.
It faded but the memories could bring it back any second, keeping me in the moment.
It would never fully heal. I could never really be free. I could never really be fixed.
Now I just have to work out how to live whilst being broken.
I feel like I'm dying.

In the Western Isles, where we have a cottage, it'll be light around the third week of June until midnight. You don't need a torch to get about outside - it gets what I call bosky - and by 1.30 or 2 in the morning it's getting distinctly light again. Sunrise is about 3 am!

The corollary is that in December it's not properly light until about 9 am and it starts getting dark again at about 3 pm. I dare say that in the Shetlands (a good bit further north) there's even less daylight than in the Hebrides.

Tony - not trying to outdo you Londoners!




Never surrender.

Wow, gorgeous!
It's always dark by 9pm here :(



Giving up doesn't always mean you're weak.
Sometimes it just means you're strong enough to let go.

Am I the only one who hates it when it's light for too long? My sense of time gets all jacked up!

I'm the same. I much prefer dark nights.

Although, here is the view from my flat just after 9pm. It's light here too. Actually, it's starting to get dark now.

I get a really nice view of the sky here. I live in a rural area, so you can really see all the colours at the right time. I had a friend come to stay the other week and she went upstairs and commented on how pretty the sky was!
I'll have to take a picture when i remember!



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

I live in a fairly rural area too, but if I go over the Common and up the hill, I can watch the sun set/rise over the City. It's truly beautiful. I#ll try and take a photo later if the sun pops out amongst all these clouds!

Same here. It's been raining pretty much non-stop since about 10am yesterday.
