A and B, TZ1 and TZ3

Eye have been staring at hundreds of images, all of which look really good to me, but the task is to objectively analyze the differences to reach conclusions regarding which camera does what best.

I find that I like both cameras! I guess I’ll just use one or the other, or both at the same time. How fortunate to have been born into a life where I have such abundance and opportunity.

The summer solstice is a result of the Earth's north-south axis being tilted 23.4 degrees relative to the sun. The tilt causes different amounts of sunlight to reach different regions of the planet.

June Weddings and Honeymoons

Pagans called the Midsummer moon the "Honey Moon" for the mead made from fermented honey that was part of wedding ceremonies performed at the Summer Solstice.

Perhaps the most enduring modern ties with Summer Solstice were the Druids' celebration of the day as the "wedding of Heaven and Earth", resulting in the present day belief of a "lucky" wedding in June.
