Castlerigg

This megalithic structure is close to Keswick in the English Lake District. These stones were placed in this circle around 3200 BC and is one of the earliest in Europe. It’s not quite a circle since its widest point (107 feet) is about 10 feet more than its narrowest point, a bit of a squashed circle, you just can’t get the labour can you 🙂

This was late afternoon and when we arrived there were about ten other photographers all in a row setting up and waiting for the golden light. We were standing there for about an hour or so  because people kept wandering in and clambering about all over the stones. Still, I could think of worse places to relax and take in the scenery.
