Stonehenge, UK

The early morning sun peeking over the stones that form the outer ring of Stonehenge. The misty fog that blanketed the plain had just burned away minutes before. The sun's effect on the stones is magical, transforming them from mere rock, into texturally rich monoliths, and providing a wonderful dance of light and shadow.


This photo was submitted to Tate Britain's "How We Are Now: Photographing Britain" exhibition that ran from 22 May — 2 September 2007. The photo was one of four photos I submitted, this one in the Landscape category.


The exhibition aimed to take a unique look at the journey of British photography, from the pioneers of the early medium to today’s photographers who use new technology to make and display their imagery. Part of the exhibition was an open call to photographers using Flickr as an entry point. There were 7,876 photos submitted in total, of which 40 were selected as finalists.
