Midnight on the Winter Solstice at Cairn Holy, near Carsluith, Galloway.

A scrappy shot of the waning moon a little after midnight on the winter solstice (21st December), at Cairn Holy, near Carsluith, Galloway. It took a little presence of mind to set my alarm and to be up and about for midnight (00.16 at that location), and to sit alone in what's described as a burial chamber, but I don't think ever was, and to hold the camera still on a bendy legged mini-tripod while strongly gusting winds sent clouds tattering past like delinquent bedsheets.
About ten hours later from the west end of the long barrow.
