This is Dumha na nGiall, Mound of the Hostages, a 5,000-year-old passage-tomb on the Hill of Tara in County Meath. I took this photo just after darkness had fallen on the ancient hill. The chamber of the monument (where the fragmented bones of over 200 people were found during excavations in the 1950s) is illuminated with an orange LED light, while the front of the monument is lit up using remote flash. The light on the clouds is from the nearby towns of Navan (right) and Trim (left).
