Sunset on Mt Lady MacDonald

Posted by
grouser (Ludlow, United Kingdom) on 17 October 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

We climbed this mountain getting as far as the top of the central ridge at about 8,000 ft. where there is a helicopter pad and the remains of an ill fated venture to build a Tea house there. Couldn't manage the last slog to the summit. Pictures of the climb will come later

Love that golden colour of the last rays of sun, a beautiful scene Grouser and a hard climb I should think

Gorgeous light, 8000ft would have been a neat achievement.

Looks barren, and the sky rather ominous. Better get to shelter quickly.

Stunning shot of the gorgeous sunset. It's so beautiful that the sunlight is shinning into the ridge. I look forward to seeing the next one. Have a nice day. :)

Must be some blue sky someplace, based on the shadow on the mountain! Nice sky and mountain.

wonderfully vivid evening colours - they must have been some consolation for the aborted hike to the summit ;-)
