Stonehenge Up Close
Here's an up close and personal shot of Stonehenge
from our February 24 excursion (see yesterday's pic for more info). This time there is no PS watercolor filter.
Again, I have kept a person in for scale, even though he's farther back. These stones are mammoth! Remember that the tallest is 24 feet high (7.3m).
I don't know when the stones were restricted from touching. But after graffiti was sprawled over them at some point, this World Heritage Site had to be restricted. Now all you can do is walk in a full circle around them, which I did. This is one of the prehistoric wonders of the world from over 4,000 years ago, billed as Britain's greatest ancient temple (to the sun and the changing seasons)!
Don't let me confuse you. I'm in Atlanta for the next few days!
