Sunsetting far to the north of west at the Solstice

I went up to the top of Bear Road to find a good place to photograph the sunset near the summer solstice.  Jackie helped me find the equation to calculate where the sun would set, and on this particular day it was about 50 degrees west of north – and that’s as far north as the sun ever gets at this latitude.

Sun setting over Brighton on 18th June - essentially the same place as on the Solstice, but I wasn't free that evening.
