Golden hill, dark sky

After the torrential rain of the morning, respite came for a few hours before darkness fell. We climbed the hill in Benmore Gardens by a different route from our usual (which is chosen as giving the longest possible circular walk) and caught the last sunlight on the hill above.

The small wooden chapel-like structure in the shadow is the Andean Refuge where we usually have a breather and look at the view.
