The stones were erected in the bronze age between 2900 and 2600 BC, perhaps even BG... Before Graham :lol:

I will try to find a wider angle shot.

Thank you so much, and thank you for the link. I love stuff like that! Amazing image, just amazing! S-

Stunning. Love the shadows of the others. A night of silent worship, 5 thousand years old. Do you have one with a full moon? Matt

Sorry Matt, no full moon shot. Lucky to see the moon through the clouds anytime up there :)

Very real, but so imaginary as well. The shot is nicely proportioned and the black and white a work of art. We don't need to know there are others there and the shadows I took for minor undulations in the ground (at first glance).

I'm imagining the Druids marching forward for a prayer, a sacrifice, or just to check the alignment of celestial bodies.

Another part of Scotland I've yet to visit.
