Another Evening on the Heath
Wednesday 22nd July 2020
Third evening in a row on the heath! This time with a bottle of Ambriel, and stayed until it got completely dark.
London July 2020
The view across Parliament Hill Fields.
The top of Parliament Hill.
As always I made my way to my favourite spot, by the Bronze Age barrow, and sat there for a good couple of hours to watch the sky change colour.
...with some Ambriel.
I also brought along Hilaire Belloc's The Old Road to re-read his theory on why Stonehenge and Avebury are where they are.
Self portrait. I don't wear this suit very often but I somehow thought it suited the occasion this evening.
Bits of pink starting to creep into the sky now.
I thought this might make a nice shot.
The gap in the photos here is because a passing couple stopped to chat, and we had a long rambling conversation about all sorts of things from Stonehenge to software engineering. By the time they left it was dark!
The trees around the barrow looking mystical in the dark.
I don't normally stay on the heath this late, but it was interesting to see (or at least hear) that quite a lot of other people obviously do.
As you can see, still a few people dotted about here.
A couple of last views as I was leaving the heath.
Almost back at home now - I thought the night sky here looked nice, although of course the photo doesn't really do it justice.
