On my quest for more millstone shots i googled Peak Millstones which came up with Gardoms Edge a place i had never heard of or visited and it's just south of Curbar edge. It's less rugged but greener and calmer than Stanage edge and as i am not one for keeping to footpaths quickly stumbled on this amazing 4,000 year old Neolithic monolith or standing stone which is 7ft high, looks like a sun dial and is astronomically aligned, incredible 2,000BC !!.

A quite beautiful and somewhat romanticised setting in which to capture such great images as this...

You really show the relationship between the sun and the stone by your positioning of them and the starburst sun also draws attention to this. The branch on the ground makes a satisfying third element and pulls the eye back to the sun. So little lens flare too; very accomplished!
