Avebury Summer Solstice
Tuesday 20th - Wednesday 21st June 2023
Dusk til dawn in Avebury for this year's summer solstice.
London June 2023
Not long after I arrived - I cut it a bit fine this year and only had an hour or so before sunset.
The stones at Avebury.
Spotted Russell Brand.
The sun has well and truly set by this point.
Having some mead! Kindly offered by a guy I spoke to who watches my videos.
More post sunset shots of Avebury.
The moon over Avebury.
I had found somewhere to get a few hours sleep, but alas quite some distance from Avebury and didn't quite make it back to Avebury in time for the moment of sunrise.
Still, nice skies from the track.
I guess the official moment of sunrise was roundabout now?
Finally made it back to Avebury. Better late than never!
The crowds lined up on the embankment to welcome the solstice sun.
One last photo a bit before getting the first bus of the day back to Swindon.
