Longest shoot day I’ve been on was 23 hours long. Naturally, we saw both sunrise and sunset ing the course of that day.

With the summer solstice coming up this week, I got to thinking about how many hours of daylight is there between a couple of potential shooting locations. Who gets the best deal in sunlight for the summer next week (according to the Daylight Hours Explorer)?

Hollywood, California = 14.3 hours

Vancouver, Canada = 16.0 hours

Glasgow, Scotland = 17.3 hours

Reykjavik, Iceland = 20.4 hours

Honolulu, Hawaii = 13.3 hours

Auckland, New Zealand = 9.5 hours

Hmmm… looks like my longest shoot day would still have seen at least one sunrise or set during the day!

Cheers & happy summer shooting to you,
