Solstice Sunrise and Sunset

Up bright and early on the solstice on the 21st to watch the sunrise over Arbor Low stone circle, and then out late-ish to photograph the sunset from The Mermaids Pool near Leek. A long day!

A grey and chilly start for the sunrise around 4.35, and maybe fifty people there altogether including a few who camped. The sunrise itself was unfortunately hidden by clouds, but it was just nice to sit and watch as people have been doing there for thousands of years.

The evening was the opposite, warm and orange instead of cool and blue. No sign of the mermaid though!
