In anticipation of the upcoming solstice, Ailsa has collected a few photos illustrating variations of the word still. The word solstice comes from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still) referring to the point at which the sun pauses on its seasonal path (as viewed from Earth) before reversing direction.
One of the strangest places I have been to is Dungeness here in the UK which is one of the largest expanses of shingle in the Europe, and is classified as Britain’s only desert by the Met office. Here I caught this photographer keeping very still whilst taking a photo of the anchored boat in this vast desolate landscape.
