Happens twice every year (March and September) near where I live, the sunsets between two trees. These two sunsets, 11 1/2 years apart March 2009 Last evening

You think? We get these same stories and debates every single year but nothing ever changes.   Long live GMT!

Well guess what LG, some of us here suffer from SAD so I can't tell you how much that can affect your mood and how much better daylight can make you feel. Need I remind you how much you complain about

Can't believe we're at this point already. Not ready for nights to be shortening again.

That's OK then, because they are lengthening in a few days time :)

11.08 this morning the sun begins its return journey, and the countdown to winter begins.

The journey to the good times begins!?

No, no, no, nooooooo...The time of year when Ice Man and yourself are doing cartwheels of joy, whilst I'm whining about anticyclonic gloom, will soon be upon us!???

You summer loving guys can enjoy the coming vile heat and humidity but....every day from today onwards, the days start to shorten...by a few seconds per day at first but with ever increasing unstoppable momentum.

Our time is coming again. 10 weeks til the start of meteorological Autumn (cackle)

The days may be shortening, but for the next 2 months the heat will be increasing!

Guess I'm lucky in that while I prefer summer, I like winter as well, so I won't be getting too beat up about the days getting shorter again. Only 4 months until everyone can start panning for gold and looking for that epic cold spell once again.

The long journey back to winter has started.  Of course at this stage it's just psychological . But I don't like the days being so long at this time of year so I look forward to the days getting that bit shorter for starters.

Aye ,the long march back to crap damp drizzle days with no snow what an epic yawn fest winter is 

And it'll be getting closer every day from now on. PS I couldn't help but notice that you live at 8000m above sea level. Get altitude sickness much? ?.

Less than 2 weeks until true night returns. However much I'm enjoying this wonderful Summer we're having at the moment, I still yearn for the descent into Winter.

I work nights, so don't have that problem. Only time I've seen darkness over the past couple of weeks has been on my journey home from work, and even that has only been Astronomical Twilight.

has a lot to do with my location and its proximity in my time zone....Dark Mornings in London for me last 13th Sept - 8th March..here in Edmonton they last from 25th August - 16th April..which is an extra 2 months.

I feel the same for some reason - this year more than last year I'm dreading the return to pre-4pm sunsets. Maybe it's because the weather's been so nice? 

I actually like the short days around Christmas because it can feel pretty cosy, but otherwise it's rather depressing. I hope we get some snow to brighten things up a bit.

I'm very much a summer person and always suffer a mood dip in winter so pre 4pm darkness is definitely not for me. Would probably be better off somewhere where the daylight stays roughly the same year round.

Already lost half hour of daylight in the evening ?

It isn't until a months time we begin to notice the lowering light levels, it begins to get dark around 9pm then, so we have a good 4 weeks or so yet, of proper summer light. The run of clear light nights this summer so far has been remarkable.
