    Rules of attraction - not Stonehenge; but Avebury

    The cove.
    This shot was part of a photowalk around the Avebury site, with a view to capturing the solidity and texture of the stones against the smooth texture and temporary nature of the clouds. The main issue turned out to be trying not to go insane when followed by a hippy dude with a hand-drum.

    Hippy: Bap, Bap, Bap, Bap, Bap, bappity, Bap, Bap, Bap, Bap, bappity, bap, bap.

    Me: Please be quiet.... no really, or I'll be forced to hurt you.

    Well, you get the picture; I'm not a violent person, but I was there 3 hours and he didn't stop, at all. at any point. I don't care what higher plain you're on; there comes a point when it's just pollution.

    Notes: 5D (classic) 1/60sec, f11, iso100; Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0 L USM @17mm. ACR for Raw; Conversion: Nik Silver Efex Pro.

      Great image! The contrast of roughness and smoothness speaks by itself. I hope your hearing is ok!
