Stonehenge

    Newer Older

    I didn't actually plan to come here. I was heading for Cornwall, kind of 90% sure I was going the right way when I suddenly saw it to my right, so took a slightly last minute right turn and went for a quick nosy.

    Interesting enough, but the best thing about Stonehenge, for me, is the age. Apparently, the oldest remains of the monument are over 5000 years old. Oh, and the original stones were carried all the way from Wales...

    This image is geotagged but, at time of writing, the satellite image on Google Maps is much better than Flickr's.

    More about Stonehenge on Wikipedia.

    See more of my best shots on my photo blog.

      This could have been written by myself, as it happened exactly the same way to me, just 3 or 4 days earlier. I was also on my way to Cornwall. It is great to be in Stonehenge so suddenly and in an unexpected way, isn´t it? I still did not post my pictures.
      Yes, the birds...plenty of them...
      Love this place.

      Great shot. Those birds were very obliging! How much did you pay them?

      Great picture the birds certainly give it a weird sense of the primordial!

      I went to Stonehenge last month and around the stones were people galore, but no sight of birds, therefore I favourite this picture. :D
