An excellent composition and I agree with Cathryn about the effectiveness of including the figure in red.

This is great, it looks from this perspective like its balanced very very precariously!

Excellent shot......makes you think about early engineering and determination in equal measure!

awesome artifact, more delicately balanced than Poulnabrone...grand that Ireland has preserved so much of it's history...V

That is so cool. WOW. Amazing and wonderful place. Great shot, you have nice light and background. V

It's hard to imagine how they could do that without modern machinery. A beautiful shot, especially with that woman in red in the background. Excellent!

Great shot! The person in red provides such a nice contrast and sense of scale.

What a wonderful shot! \/

Great shot, at first I thought it was some modern art work until I read your description. Very interesting structure, love it...v

I guess they weren't only growing carrots, they must have had huge muscles too!

I'm trying to work out if this is an art installation or something a tad older....

It looks impossible and quite scary!
