E/Alphabe-Thursday

 EVENING light over Lake Simcoe I

In the Northern Hemisphere, summer begins this EVENING (June 20) at 7:09 pm EASTERN Daylight Time. Today marks the Summer Solstice when  the sun's apparent position is the longest distance above the EQUATOR.

 EVENING light over Lake Simcoe II

AH, I love an EVENING drive to a nearby lake to watch the sunset. Could this be Heaven on EARTH?

All three are lovely: the rocks glow in the evening light in the first photo and the second one's composition is perfect. The lone chair in the bottom photo is such a contrast to the speeding boat. Terrific.
