Traces of the Past Y3-07

Saw these ancient stones in Skane (Scania county), Sweden in the most stunning late afternoon light…. for years I have tried to find a stone circle in decent light, and finally, hurrah!

  1. When did you find them at last? The photo is gorgeous with this tinted sky. I love this combination of colours and the stone circles are my favourite traces from the past 🙂 Well done!

  2. Stunning … well done and that sky is priceless …. next time for me.

  4. Nice menhirs, Sue. I have never been to Scandinavia, and probably never will now. Good to see the photos of your trip.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. Worth waiting for, Sue. 🙂

  6. Oh this is just excellent, Sue. Whenever I find a stone circle the light is usually rubbish. I long to find one on a frosty morning with a low sun…

      Well, it’s taken me nigh on 40 years!! I went to Castlerigg in the Lake District but of course the weather was dul, seriously dull. Nearly 20 years after that, Callanish was seen in drizzle. In between, there were others. In dull weather!

  7. really wonderful photo, Sue

  8. Nice dramatic sky. Wonderful photo. 😀

  9. Magic, how big are they, people height?

  10. Absolute beauty. The contrast of the stones and the sky: wow.

  11. Wow! Such great lighting and a dramatic sky as a bonus.

    Very moody photograph, and very well shot.

  13. Hoorah indeed! What a magnificent shot, Sue 🙂 🙂

  14. I’m really fascinated by stone circle.. love the history and all the stories linked to them. Very nice picture!

  15. I keep finding great light but nothing to put in front of it, or great objects – like stone circles – but with white skies and blah light. Congratulations on finding both (and happening to have your camera with you at the time!)
