Climbing Jacobs Ladder
by jackill  7 Dec 2011
Through one thing and another I haven't climbed a new hill or entered a new comment on Mountainviews in several months.After the passing of a dear friend and relative, last Saturday I finally decided to have a go at the final five hills on my local 100 list which was made up of some modest tops in the Shannon region.

The first of the hills to fall was Gortnageragh, an easy walk on a forest track to the summit.
The trig pillar is in a grassy field as you emerge from the forest with a telephone mast nearby.
It was a hazy day but I was happy to capture an image of "Jacobs Ladder".
Crepuscular rays, to give them their proper name, ( also known as God Rays), are rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from a single point in the sky.
These rays, which stream through gaps in cloud cover, are columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed areas. The name comes from their frequent occurrences during crepuscular hours (those around dawn and dusk), when the contrasts between light and dark are the greatest.
Crepuscular comes from the Latin word crepusculum meaning twilight and though it wasn't twilight the overcast day had that feel to it.

Yeats' poem "Into the Twilight" is probably too sentimental and too forlorn
for many but seems to strike the right chord.

"Come, heart, where hill is heaped upon hill:
For there the mystical brotherhood
Of sun and moon and hollow and wood
And river and stream work out their will;

And God stands winding His lonely horn,
And time and the world are ever in flight;
And love is less kind than the grey twilight,
And hope is less dear than the dew of the morn" Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/746/comment/6643/
