Could kick myself! Did you see the midnight 'sun'? Seems lots of people did and posted photos yesterday. Well waking up about 2:00am I thought the sun was out - bright round light showing on the shut curtains. It was the moon, never seen it so bright and glowing - beautiful. So I admired it for a bit and went back to sleep. Why oh why did I not get up and go get my camera!
No tell of midnight sun around these parts - rarely even a sighting of the moon these days because of the cloud cover. There was a brief hint of a sunrise showing (below) through the altostratus soon after 04:00 this morning but it soon disappeared as the cloud thickened.
Two offerings today. The first was a couple of days ago, the second this morning. I each case the cloud thickened and obscured the appearance of the sun. I don't know if it's the same blackbird in each one!
Large golden moon over Loch Linnhe. This was after a hot sunny day (actually reached 25C!)A couple of hours later terrific lightning and thunder, there was far more lightning than thunder and it was the sort of lightning that just lit up the clouds - amazing!
