The Dawn Sun, Sliding South

Another cracking dawn. There were four Roe deer in our neighbouring field, but sadly they scarpered before I got to my camera. I don’t actually have a brilliant lens for wildlife, so you have been spared a photo of four brown smudges in a brown field.

Only a few days of this solar season left, the autumnal equinox is on 22 September. This means that in the UK there are only four more days when the sun will have any north in it at all for another six months. At times like this, close to the equinox, the point on the horizon that the sun rises changes by more each day than at any other time in the year.
