'Summer' Solstice

The glorious orange globe of the Sun rose majestically over the Eastern horizon illuminating a perfect azure sky, smiling down, radiating its warming rays to bathe the Earth; problem was you couldn't see it. At 0452, up on Nine Barrow Down for this mornings Solstice sunrise, thick mists clung so close to the ground that visibility was nought more than a few meters. But you knew the Sun was there and that's all that matters.

Later, descending through the lush and verdant woodland below the barrows, towards Rempstone stone circle, the mists had cleared significantly, though enough remained to imbue Kings Wood with a mystical quality.

Brightest Blessings this Summer Solstice.
