    Great pictures! I wasn’t up that early, and it was overcast here, anyway! Bummer. Glad you got some good shots.

      I was kind of hoping it would be cloudy. Then it would appear more dark and gloomy like it usually is here. But this way I got to pinpoint where the sun actually shows up here on the solstice. Now I need to remember to do the same thing on the longest day of the year.
