The Bohea Stone, (one of the oldest achaeological stone alignments in Ireland) marks the spot from where, twice a year, the setting sun rolls perfectly down the flank of "The Reek". It is believed that the 2 dates mark the beginning and end of the ancient Summer season. On the evening in question, a cloud formed on the Reek, at that critical time, bathing the whole lanscape in golden light.

The following evening, Michelle came back and captured the event perfectly on film. Check out the results on http://www.youtube.com/user/Splashywater
