A Summer Sunset

Though summer doesn’t arrive till Thursday the weather couldn’t wait and we reached 85 degrees today.  Along with high temperatures expected all week,  the summer solstice will also bring the longest day of the year.  In Seattle that means a whopping 16 hours of daylight, with sunrise at 5:11 a.m. and sunset at 9:10 p.m.  It rather makes up for those dark, dreary days of winter, don’t you think?

And what better time of year to enjoy the sunset!   Driving home last night while the sun was setting we could tell it was special so we swung by a new spot to watch it.  These pictures were taken at 9:20.

Look closely and you’ll see the Seattle skyline far off in the distance and Lake Washington shimmering to the right.

I only had my phone with me so the quality of the pictures could be better. Still the sunset speaks for itself.

Looking forward to returning to this spot to enjoy more sunsets of summer with real camera in hand.

  1. A lovely sunset indeed, Susanne. I usually look forward to the 21st, for that long day, and late sunset. However, we are currently stuck under heavy cloud in eastern England, and the days are dull and humid as a result.
    Best wishes, Pete.
