The Millennium Wrinkle in Time was the first panoramic Internet event I took part in. It had a shooting window the same as this event, 24 hours (any time during 1st January 2000). For this event I wanted to shoot the panorama exactly on the solstice and this presented me with the problem of it being 6:08am local time, well before sunrise.

I decided not to travel too far at that time in the morning and was originally going to shoot an early morning view of Malvern Priory. Unfortunately like others on the day, I found out that after a certain time all of the outside lights are turned off. This forced a quick location re-think at the last minute.

After a quick 60 second walk I was here at my next location, standing next to Edward Elgar, looking down Church Street and watching the postal workers leaving in their vans delivering cards and presents. It was a dark and misty morning that I hope my panorama captures.
