On the longest day of the calendar year - 21st June 2014 - I timelapsed the solstice sunrise and sunset to record the rising and setting sun. The events not only hold the longest amount of time between them but also signals the beginning of shorter days and longer nights.

Sunrise was timelapsed at Cherhill while sunset was timelapsed at Roundway Hill. Both of these locations are in the rural county of Wiltshire in England and both were Iron Age forts, from where people have watched sunrises and sunsets for thousands of years. Cherhill and Roundway are close to Stonehenge, the most famous solstice viewpoint and monument, and Avebury's stone circle too, where thousands of people gathered to watch and observe the 2014 summer solstice.
