Photosynthesis ends when the sun completes its third rotation around the board (or fourth, in one of the game’s ‘advanced’ variants). Once that is done, players will add up the point tokens they drew from completing the life cycle of their trees, get some bonus points for left-over light points, and a winner is declared.
