One of the downsides to living in Alaska, even though we technically have 24 hours of sunlight in the summer, is that we often get weeks of rain and don’t see the sun. It is depressing when it is 49 degrees outside in July with pouring rain and friends back home are blowing up Facebook with photos of swimsuits, pool parties, and backyard barbecues. (Of course, when it is sunny and 70 degrees in summer there is no better place to be on Earth.)
In an effort to appease the Sun God as we enter the rainy season, below is a photo essay of pictures I’ve taken of the sun around the world. Perhaps the sun will see my tribute and bless me with a daily appearance.
Photos of the Sun from Around the World
Okay, sun, there is my offering. Please come out soon.
