The longest day

As I write, the sun is setting on the longest day of 2009. I should be outside watching it, but I've just come back from a long and unpleasant train journey between Penzance and London.

The attached photo is from two days ago at the south-western tip of England, the Isles of Scilly. This will be the last place to get dark this evening - but it's too late to get there now, sorry.

As many as 36,500 people rolled up to Stonehenge in the wee hours of this morning, although the sun sadly failed to break through the clouds.

To think the nights will be getting shorter from here on in.
