Picture Story

Standing at 290m, Mount Harriet is located 10 km west of Stanley, The Falklands capital. What started out as a battlefield walk up the southern section of the hill, soon led me along the narrow and rocky ridge west towards a war monument. With Stanley now in the distance to the east, the South Atlantic to the south, and the Two Sisters to the north, I decided to press on along the ridge towards the west of Mount Harriet. Finally, I came to the edge and was greeted with a spectacular view of Wall Mountain.

I decided to return to this spot to capture a sunset picture. The conditions were perfect; the mist had now descended over Wall Mountain. The sunset was one of the most striking and vivid I have ever seen, with colours changing from yellow, to a glowing orange then a deeper red. The fading light created a soft glow on the foreground rocks and vegetation in the midground. The rocks and winding road leads towards the misty mountain, and finally, the sunset.
