Shortest day, longest sunset

Today, 21 June 2022, the mist flowed in gently before the approaching storm and the sun hid high in the sky behind a thin layer of dense cloud. This left the light lingering in the apparent dusk of sunset for at least four hours. The Snoek were running and the fishermen were having golden dreams of how life could be when there is plenty.

Golden dreams of successful days.
On the other horizon the blue light of afternoon still shone, showing only a thin strip of mist to account for the abnormally long sunset being produced across the bay.
Every minute brought different cloud formations.
Each incoming boat trailed its own flock of seabirds.
The sun dropped down into the sea
Finally, the rose of night completed the display.
