Midsummer madness

21st June 2011
Today is midsummer day and I had romantic notions of getting a midsummer day sunrise. Now you may have noticed I do more sunrise and sunset pictures in the winter. The reason for this is clear... like me in winter the sun gets up later !. So I set the alarm for 3.45am having planned on a location I needed to give myself time to get there for 4.30 for the sunrise at 5.07. So I dragged myself out of bed got dressed got the camera gear together and sat in the car. The weather was awful skies were very heavy and grey and the rain was persistent! I started the engine and then thought "what am I at "!!!, So back in the house and back under the warm sheets. I then could not sleep imagining the lovely sunrise I was missing!!! I looked out the window at 5am and to my relief the weather was exactly the same and I missed nothing!! It rained all morning until about an hour ago, I was out in the car and stopped to photograph a few roadside flowers, I spotted this bee foraging in a bunch of foxgloves and followed her for a while!
