Back to the future, or forward to the past !?

It has been many months, eight or so, since I last posted, due to various factors, a new computer allowing greater access to the temptations of the internet, allied to my own lethargy and sheer laziness, and perhaps just life getting in the way.

Anyway, here I am back with the intention of carrying the work further.

My previous post was of the (near) summer solstice photo over the Forth Road Bridge from Hawes pier at South Queensferry. This year I intend to develop this further, and if possible be at Hillend fort for the summer solstice setting. This may not be practical given my lack of transport, but hopefully things will work out!

The photo was taken a few nights after the solstice so I am unsure exactly how the suns setting point had changed, but it would not have been by much. Also the photo was taken a bit after sunset from sea-level. Hillend is the logical point to get an accurate fix from at the point of sunset.

Love your work Tom. I have also been exploring the Reshel grids, particularly related to Edinburgh and the influence of the Edinburgh Matrix. I look forward to your future posts and who knows... maybe some collaboration.... Enjoy.

I did try and get to Hillend this solstice, but gave up as I was a tad late and the clouds made it pointless.

Thanks all for the comments, Sunfeather, sorry I missed your comment. Bill Buehler's reshel grids are something else, heck out the google earth images in my June and July posts. More to follow on that topic, but I need to heck with him first!

Hey there terrific blog! Does running a blog such as this require a lot of work?
I have very little expertise in computer programming however I
was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should
you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share.
I know this is off topic however I just needed to ask.
Appreciate it!
