Trombity sunsets

Because Mazowsze is a flat and featureless plain, the sun rises from and sets into the very rim of the earth's horizon. The changing seasons can thus be observed. In winter, sunrises and sunsets occur to the south, in summer, much further north. This sunset photo was taken on ul. Trombity two weeks after the Vernal (or spring) Equinox, that night when all people on earth experience 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. As such, the sun is setting just north of due west.
