Last Saturday was the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year. It is so nice to have the light, usually after 9:00 PM (21:00), when I return from some activity away from home. Tuesday night was our jam session, and when I was driving home, there was a nice light show going on in the sky as the sun made its way toward the horizon at the far end of the Robson Valley. I pulled the truck (still smelling of dead mouse) over to the side of the road and took the above photo of the sunset over the Fraser River.
When I got home and was unloading all my musical instruments from the truck, the sunset was still going on and taking on a more rosy hue. The picture below is the setting sun illuminating the clouds over the Cariboo Mountains. It was taken at 9:30.
