Summer Solstice 2008
Yesterday was Midsummer Day and a holiday here, but this celebration hasn’t been so festive as the day before which is called the Midsummer Eve. It’s a celebration of dance around a flower-decorated pole, while the dancers wear a summer wreath on the head. But I’m not keen on that cos there’s something I always look forward to on midsummer day – the summer solstice – the longest day and shortest night happens. I always took a picture of how bright it is at 10.00-11.00 in the evening. This time, I was lucky cos no rain and I even captured a lone bird in the bright sky.
