172/2011 summer solstice

172/2011 summer solstice, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Longest day of the year, and then we’ll turn towards winter again! It’s really the glass half full / half empty situation again. My holiday has hardly begun, and the thought of winter already enters my mind!

These soft and delicately green weeds, obstinaely pushing through the pebbles on the beach, were swaying invitingly in the seaside wind as I walked past. The evening sun shed warm light on them, while casting dark shadows on the stones. The English longest day was considerably shorter than the Finnish one – it got dark before 10pm here. Compare that to my Finnish photo from last year.
