Evening sunlight

Walking east out of the campus yesterday at 6:10 in the evening, I noticed that the sun was still high in the sky. Less than two weeks ago it would have been quite dark at this time and night-blind-me would have been having a hard time on the gravel paths. Summer has arrived.

Beautiful photo. Lovely colours of the sky. I really like the "Sky Watch" photos - one may think that the sky is everywhere the same, but it's not truth:)
