28th April 2005 the windiness...

28th April 2005 the windiness...

Took a walk up to the stones this afternoon,
it was wild and wet.
I love this kind of windy weather,
and I was all wrapped up.
I stayed up there nearly an hour,
in the shelter of the biggest stone.
About 5000 years,
or nearly 200 generations ago,
a gang of about 90 people dragged pushed and levered this stone,
weighing 12 tons, into position.
These stones would mark the landscape indelibly,
a monument to the builders' beliefs.
Although these people are long gone,
their physical symbols still stand.

I love the overall moodiness of this photo, tempered by the charming little curve in the road, and the touches of deep green in the grass. Very nice!!! I'd say it's one of my fave photoes ever!

Beautiful and very dramatic. I love the wet path and then the line in the field that lead us deep into the photo.

Dark & mysterious. I think spring has forgotten your part of the world Andy.
