Summer Solstice Scorcher!


Untitled, photo by Brooke Pennington

I thought a cool photo would be perfect for this scorching hot summer solstice! The Summer Solstice is the yearly moment when the sun’s apparent position in the sky reaches its northernmost point. You can think about it as throwing a ball up in the air – when the ball reaches its maximum height, that’s the solstice.

In addition to being the longest day of the year, it’s also the first day of summer. It all happens today  at 7:09 PM in Michigan! More about the solstice from National Geographic.

Check this out bigger and in Brooke’s Summer slideshow.

    Another dandy photo from my favorite photography blog! It is indeed summer in West Michigan. Has been for some time already. Another reminder of God’s faithfulness to His Word in bringing the seasons, as He ordained and commands. May you have a blessed summer. And may we remember to redeem this time too to the Lord. For His glory and for our good.
