This year I decided to re-interpret the date of equinox. Officially, the precise moment of the equinox at Glastonbury is Friday, 23 September 2022, 02:03 BST.
Obviously, if it occurs in the middle of the night then to me the 22nd feels just as valid. Also, with the next day being on the weekend many people will decide to celebrate on the 24th.
So with a few days to play with and the promise of some good weather I headed out across Somerset for some early morning trips.
I had to start at the Tor. There was a small crowd at the top and the good ceremony to welcome in the equinox.
There was even a bit of mist sitting over the Somerset Levels. This was the first chance I had to photograph mist this autumn.
Just up the road is Fenny Castle, an old motte and bailey castle. Before sunrise the sky was soft and pink.
It would be cool if more was made of the castle site. I noticed on my cycle rides that there have been a lot of tree clearance there recently, but I do not know what the plans are.
The Hare Acre Hill above this small hamlet provide a wonderful view point to look east across the valley of the River Axe.
Heading to the coast and the village of Uphill. At the top of that hill is an old church and a round beacon tower. Today I decided to focus on the tower. The morning gave us a sky saturated with blue and pink.
That trip also highlighted how so many of the clouds come from aircraft trails.
