You who look at my image may find the title a little strange so I'll explain the reason.
You see I have what I call a "Bucket List" this is a list of things that I wish to do or even see before I die, in other words before I "Kick the Bucket". So seeing Stonehenge was one of my wishes so now I can put a tick against that one and move on to the next challenge. Unfortunately I have come to realise that there are already some things that are on my list that I will through disability be unable to achieve but so what there are plenty of others down on it and as I don't intend to go quite yet maybe I'll get one or two others ticked off! Smile

This must be one of the most photographed place in the British Isles, on the day I was there there must have been thousands of people from all over the world taking at least 10 pictures each. So you could say at least 50 000 images a day so I do not this picture to do to well as there cant be many people in the country that have not seen hundreds of images already.
The thing that matters to me though is "I LIKE IT"


Thanks for taking the time to have a look at one thing on my Bucket List. Smile


David.


PS can I also say a special thank you to redstag AKA Jon for his encouragement . Next time Jon.

Love the idea of the bucket list, good luck with that. The rocks contrast well with that glorious moody sky. I've offered a mod just to give the image that extra punch, I hope you like it.

Hi David,

This looks every bit as good - no better than the one you sent to my phone, that sky is brooding and moody filling the scene with much atmosphere as these marvelous stones deserve, your list is a good idea and I must start to get one, I have a few things in mind Smile

This should get much attention David, get it printed up too....

This image is as brooding and moody as surely this amazing place should be? That really is quite some sky! A visit was on my list too, but eventually saw Stonehenge one very chilly October day a few years ago. The nice thing about bucket lists is that they can be so readily adapted!

Glad to see you back uploading.
I think of the guy who was granted a wish by a genie.
He wished "I want to live forever",
"No, living forever is not allowed" replies the genie.
"OK, I want to live until England win the world cup"
"You crafty so and so" said the genie.

Good grief, I never expected this much attention on this image, saying that though it is very welcome and I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to have a look. Thank You. Also to all of you who thought that the bucket list was a good idea and to EAS who has the right idea with the Bucket List, Your right it can be readily adapted as time passes. To Linda as well for saying it should be printed and to Carsten for offering to get it printed for me. Thank You.
I would like to say that I intend to get a couple of more images before My Bucket List is closed for good! Ha...Ha...Ha. Grin

Thank you all.

David.

Stonehenge at its best David, the sky is awesome.

I visited this place about 25 years ago as a young boy and it was really great then. It was free to get in and I could get close to and touch the stones. But now they turned into a tourist place and charge people 8-10pounds to see it from a distant.

kind regards

This is an excellent image and makes me think of when I was there years and years ago - when I was very young - and no-one else either apart from husband and me. It was dark and grey and very quiet, just the atmosphere your image conjures. We could walk wherever and touch whatever - I gather things have changed a lot - shame.

Thanks for sharing this.

Love the idea of a "bucket list". Think I might start one of them myself Smile

And I love Stonehenge too, even if I have seen it many, many times having grown up just a few miles away.

Used to cycle there as a kid and that was in the days when you could get right up to the stones. Cycled there for the Summer Solstice on more than one occasion too, but never taken a photograph of it yet so maybe that's one for my "bucket list". Don't think I'll cycle from where I live now though as I'm about 600 miles away Smile

its a great image of an iconic place, however your image is very unique in the fact that your image was taken by you in your style in your composition in your camera settings so no one and it does not matter how many images there are of this place will have the same photo.
I am glad you like it because so do i and many others before me.
This is the reason i love photography so much, all our images are unique.

Hi David,
great moody image of this great landmark.
I go there to each summer solstice, when it is completely opened & you can walk within the stones.
This year, I am also going to the Winter Solstice there , with the aim of photographing some friends who attend for spritual reasons.

Here's to hoping you can clock up a good total on your list.

Thankyou for the vote on my "Indian Lady."

This is one place I have yet to visit David. I also like your shot, and the brooding clouds do put an atmosphere of the whole scene. As for a bucket list of mine, the many places I would love to visit with my camera, that would cost a fortune! Still I might win the Lottery one day?
