I'm honestly still so amazed and grateful that I got to visit an obsession of mine (Stonehenge) and happened to time it on the Summer Solstice too.
These stones have such an interesting history, that nobody had managed to confirm, or even understand their whole purpose - or how such a heavy stone was placed upright, with literally tonnes of weight upon it.
Nevertheless, the summer solstice was a great chance to experience the rituals performed by some druids, at their holiest spot - and bare witness to the coming together of so many strangers, to sing and dance together and pay their respects to the world. There were guitars, drums, singers and dancers, everything to brighten up the mood as the sun slowly faded behind the horizon. Where else do you get such a collaboration of strangers - from all across the globe - all in such high spirits, sharing a moment on such a significant day?
This picture truly shows that, as the girl in red started singing on her own, with the crowd slowly joining in, celebrating the sunset.

Into The Dawn
This is a photo from my morning escapade to the rugged coast near Vik in Iceland in 2015. Shooting in the morning was a great experience for me, mostly because I was usually alone at the locations I have picked. I had all the time to take in the light and landscape and I just felt a part of the scene that I was trying to capture.

In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.
