Sunset At Long Meg

    Newer Older

    I thought i would repost this shot, for those that missed it the first time round. I am led to believe it might be appearing in a book pretty soon.

    Sunset at Long Meg and her Daughters.. One of the finest stone circles in the north of England, the circle has a diameter of about 350 feet, the second biggest in the country. Long Meg is the tallest of the 69 stones, about 12 feet high, with its rock carvings.

      Gorgeous light Brian, that's a stunning sky and the texture in the stone has come out very nicely. I think the largest stone circle in the country is ot far from me (Stanton Drew).

      Beautifully shot Brian. Lighting is perfect and I think the central placement works best. Its a very strong 'figure' and the diagonal lines work very well within the central placement.

      Rules are made to be broken and who said they were rules anyway.

      cheers Mark, we will see. I would be more than happy to get anywhere near the book. You never know, the subject matter might help it.
