Another late afternoon / early evening visit to the heath.
London January 2022
On arrival on the heath, with the sun setting somewhere over Hampstead.
This tree on the way up Parliament Hill often makes a nice framing for the setting sun.
Nice pink hints in the sky, and the London skyline beyond the bandstand.
Lots of people milling about atop Parliament Hill today.
Settling down to watch the rest of the sunset.
Official sunset time today was apparently 16:18, so it technically isn't fully there yet - but given the obstructions to the view of the horizon this was more or less the last glimpse of the sun.
Nice light on the trees across from the top of Parliament Hill.
Lovely pink tones.
Can see the moon here.
Video of walking through the woods, with lots of bird song.
The view from the barrow, including the moon.
Brought along some of BBR's Nuits St Georges today, of which I wrote: "Abundance of fresh cherry on the nose. Palate alas has some untamed edges: needs more time. Tis but a baby."
The view from the barrow again.
Portrait orientation to try and emphasize the moon a bit.
Of course attempts to get photos of the moon from a smart phone camera are always disappointing.
Looking in the other direction.
Taken by accident?
Raising a glass to the moon.
Attempt to take a Night Sight photo - and you can actually see a handful of stars there. Lens flare from the moon is interesting as well.
Another Night Sight shot of my favourite bench by the barrow.
More Night Sight shots, but doesn't really work so well when hand held.
The moon seen through this tree.
Last shot from Parliament Hill before heading home.
