Another good shot of this ritual. Your shot and the pagans remind me of Wordsworth's words: "I'd rather be /
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;".

Hi dixxipix. The passing through was actually part of a pagan ceremony and was followed by the scattering of a late Druids ashes. Therefore , as well as druids, there were pagans and friends and family present. My previous upload the guy in combat isn't in picture.
