No specific reason for another ascent of Pendle Hill, other than the fact that a sunset was in prospect....

The walk started at 18:40, sunset time has receded to 19:40, so I will be early for the actual sunset, but there's not much cloud about, so it should be a good view to the west.

I lingered and loitered around as there was no wind at all and this is a special place on such evenings.
