Got a little treat for ya. A hillwalk, but at night.

I’d planned on making the most of the three day weekend by doing a hat-trick of Cavehill, Blackhead Path and Lisnabreeny Hill ,as I hadn’t been to either of them for a while.

It was dull on Monday morning, so I headed out for a cycle instead.

Naturally, as I was out, it started to brighten up.

I was thinking to myself that this is good weather for photography.

On a weekday, I wouldn’t usually go out for a hillwalk in the evening.

In the Summer, i’d be out on the bike after work and in the Winter, i’d just go for a local walk. I’m not walking up a hill in the dark.

However, it was a Bank Holiday Monday, so I decided to take advantage of not being in work.

I had a check beforehand and the Sunset was scheduled for 8.22pm.

So, I left the house after 7pm, arriving at the shops at Four Winds around 7.35pm to park my car.

It turned out I had underestimated the walk from Four Winds to the start of Lisnabreeny Hill, getting there around 7.50pm.

By then, the Sunset was already in full swing.

I managed to get some nice photos at ground level, but I did have a sense of frustration that I had missed the best of it.

My plan was to go the the halfway point where there is a bench.

I wasn’t planning to sit down there, but it is the point where the best views of Belfast are.

In the end, I had mixed results.

I’m not usually out to get Sunset photos, so it was all trial and error.

Unfortunately, it was more error.

A lesson learnt, the next time I head to Lisnabreeny Hill to get Sunset photos, i’ll pop out a bit earlier.

Elsewhere, i’ve been informed that the bridge in Cregagh Glen has been fixed.

That means when i’m doing non Sunset related adventures in this area, I can cover the whole trail.
