The blazing Diamond Jubilee Beacon at Stoodley Pike, June 2012

(View the unlit beacon and a glorious sunset from 40 minutes earlier by clicking here)

As part of the Diamond Jubilee, celebrating 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II asceding to the throne, a series of celebratory beacons were lit across the United Kingdom. Checking the list, I discovered the nearest Jubilee beacon would be at Stoodley Pike, a favourite vantage point overlooking the Calder Valley. By 8pm the evening sun was glorious - a perfect example of the photographer's golden hour  - and I decided it'd be well worth a drive and climb to capture a couple of my 360° panoramas as the beacon was set alight.
