New Stonehenge Images


Stonehenge is the subject of the newest standing stones shots to be worked on. I was lucky enough to join a group given access by English Heritage to the stones themselves early one morning at the beginning of March. Several films later...! I have slowly been working on the images and have now posted four to the Standing Stone portfolio on the website.
As henges go I have to say I prefer Avebury, its sheer scale is almost overwhelming and its a lot more enjoyable to wander around for hours than Stonehenge normally is. Having said that, once you get into the stones themselves at Stonehenge it is amazing. They are in such a compact space that you feel totally overwhelmed by the experience. With the sun still rising I took the opportunity to get some shots of strong shadows and sunbursts. This is probably my favorite, with one of the ever present Jackdaws caught on the lintel.
