Still Images
Maeshowe December 1998 - January 1999

Sunset in Maeshowe
30 January 1999

The sun first shone onto the north wall of the passage, progressed across the passage floor, and then just into the chamber, before the sun disappeared from the passage.  In a similar way to the sunset on 19 January reflection from the wet entry passage caused brilliant illumination of the chamber.  

Pictures were taken on a Kodak DC50 digital camera, on loan from David Griffith of Orknet.  Many thanks for this very helpful gesture.
