Weekly Photo Challenge – The Golden Hour

Evening in Falmouth

This was taken while at my company’s summer party in Falmouth, Cornwall (UK). The sun has gone down behind the hotel leaving the grounds in darkness but it is still illuminating the headland, upon which you can see Pendennis Castle, which was built in 1539 by Henry VIII (though I doubt he actually did any of the heavy lifting himself!).

I didn’t have my camera with me so I took this with my phone, and then zoomed and cropped it a bit when I got home.

This is my contribution to The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge – The Golden Hour.

    Almost missed the castle, thanks for sharing!

      It was particularly small before I zoomed it a bit. Then I decided I should add a little bit of history!
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

      It’s even better up close!
      BTW I left a comment on your post as well but I think it’s gone into your Spam folder if you want to read it – this is happening to me a lot at the moment 😦

        Aw, I’ll check on that. Don’t know why that happens sometimes.

    Love your photo, live the history. I read several PCT and CDT thru hikers and several use their iPhones to capture the most amazing trail photos to post daily.

      It’s great these days with cameras on phones. I always have my phone with me, so I can always take a picture!
      Glad you liked the photo.
