Shifting Sun

I have been going walking on the beach more often lately. I always do it at sunset, because then I don’t have to worry about sunscreen, and because it’s cooler.

The sun has really shifted its position from earlier this year. Over time, it has moved from setting over the ocean.
I suppose it will keep moving until the summer solstice, then move back again. How fun to watch! I saw the movement in Baltimore, but never so clearly, because the sun always set behind buildings.

Because I’ve posted so many pictures of the sunset this year, I actually have a record. I’ll post the pictures below, but I’m getting them from posts in January, February, and March.

JANUARY

Completely over the ocean.

See the land off to the right?  The sun has moved north (to the right)

    Dang! That is pretty cool! Now I want to see Maui’s latitude. In the summer, the sun is higher in the sky for us, rather than being buried in the southern sky. Your photo with land is totally messing with my brain.

    Good for you for walking! 🙂
