Ghyll : Knight Of The Druidic Order. Stone Henge 21.12.12.

Add Comment






This rather photogenic gentleman is Ghyll, a knight of L.A.W. the Loyal Arthurian Warband, political / activist wing of the Druidic Order of Great Britain.

In the background,. Stonehenge provides a majestic backdrop.

To me, his look lends well to everything that the "order" stands for.

One of my favourite images & not uploaded in anyway until now.

Excellent shot Garth and easy to see why you would be fond of this one. Maybe cropped just a teeny tad close on the left but still a fine capture.

Excellent candid portraiture, Gareth. Superb light and focus and I especially like his position to the left of the frame.
