Cairnpapple Glow by FlippinPhil Cairnpapple Glow by FlippinPhil
This is Cairnpapple, one of the most significant prehistoric monuments in Scotland. Located in the Bathgate Hills, West Lothian in the south-east Lowlands.
The archaeology on the main site here spans a remarkable period of some 4000 years of activity, from about 3500 BC through to c.500 AD, with its major features being a Neolithic henge and circle, followed by a series of three Bronze Age cairns with cist burials, and a Late Iron Age cemetery.

I have shot this location before, but quite some time ago when my photography, and processing was nowhere near to the standard they are at now. The Cairnpapple hill is on the left where a couple relax taking in the summer sunset. I couldn't resist using the fireweed in the foreground, as the last of the light kissed across it.

=r3novatio said; Such perfect light on the flowers, that's a real eye catcher. And a wonderful composition, too. An outstanding piece from a beautiful gallery.
