It’s that time of year again, as the hour hand approaches the six, my computer screen is showered with sunshine, forcing me to lower the shutters. During the warmer months, there is a building blocking the sun from entering my office, but the analemma of the sun has moved it far enough south at sunset that its rays invade my workspace. Yesterday, I had a premonition that it might be a good idea to set up my camera pointing west. I was right.

  • Really wonderful.

    The crane was a nice touch.

  • Thanks, Ray. I’m actually looking forward to a time when there aren’t cranes in my view.

    Is it just me, or does the crane in the video look a lot more “wobbly” than one would like a crane to be?

  • I like how the crane sort of went to sleep at the end.
