I am almost too late for this week’s “Where’s my Backpack” theme which is of course late.

I thought of this previously published story of running late with my mum and dad in Japan but then I thought of the long lazy summer evenings in New Zealand and how the sun sets so late.

These photos were taken on New Year’s Eve in 2010 at Lake Wakatipu in the South Island as the late afternoon or should I say evening sun set over the lake and farewelled 201o. In the evening, down south it doesn’t get dark until late, about 9.30 to 10 pm at night.

I also hope it is not too late to edit this post and include a link to the Daily Post’s weekly Challenge – Half Light
