Bournemouth: evening sun on the pier
Bournemouth: evening sun on the pier
Well into the evening, the pier does not get direct sunlight until about 8:30 because of the height of nearby buildings. At 8:30ish the sun, ever lowering, reaches the exact point where its rays can shine down Exeter Road, forming a channel between the tall buildings allowing the pier to receive the benefits.
A partial rainbow is visible in the clouds above.
