Stonehenge, England, United Kingdom- my home away from home

Stonehenge, England Originally constructed by the British Pagans who lived on the Island Nation before the Celtic Tribes during their long war with the Roman Empire who eventually took over England and destroyed the Celts and then executed the Druid Priests and Priestesses.

At ground level, the ruins of Stonehenge appear somewhat random and chaotic, but a view from the air reveals the monument's circular order. The site started out modestly around 3100 B.C. as a wide ring of wood posts surrounded by a ditch and bank. The familiar enormous rock slabs, some brought from hundreds of miles away, were added to the interior over a period of about 1,500 years.

Stonehenge - Visited here one day before the Summer Solstice, June 20, 2012. All around they were finalizing preparations for an onslaught of Solstice visitors - lights, concessions etc. Crazy. JB

A single frame from yesterday's stack, picked due to the lack of light trails along the horizon. Coincidentally it shows Orion's constellation directly above the stones. I processed this differently to create a more timeless and isolated feel and it really shows why the Stonehenge landscape deserves to be in the top five locations for stargazing in the UK.

Looking Down, What makes Stonehenge unique? For one, its design, which includes huge horizontal stone lintels capping the outer circle and sitting atop the vertical slabs called trilithons, locked together by joints. In addition, the structure includes two different kinds of stones called Bluestones and Sarsens, the largest of which weighs more than 40 tons, according to UNESCO.
