A beautifully eerie and haunting composition which works so very well in your chosen format.

rugged, silence, solitude..
i love the light and a feeling like 'hovering over' or 'looming large'.. even stones are vulnerable to time..

Watching. Waiting. I don't want to be around when they decide it's time to act.

The mist encroaching in the background adds to the mystery of the stone circle.

I imagine the mountains circling the stones, a circle within a circle. Parents watching over the little ones. I don't sense a threat but protectiveness.
This is such an atmospheric shot, the light is perfect for the subject.

Beautifully captured and developed atmosphere, Alan. I immediately felt transported to a time , long ago, and can sense the layers of the past folding around the stones, Jacqui

I very much like the atmosphere of this image, Alan. I think the processing further enhances it by comparison to your image from this location from a while ago. Attention is less focused on the central stones, allowing one to take in the atmosphere of the whole image.

Apart from a very small correction, it's the same image. I actually forgot I'd already shown it!! GrinGrinBlushBlushBlushBlushBlush

A paltry 14 votes for this gem?? Look at it! Mystic and moody this one. The land through Alan's lens speaks and we should all listen. Tones of grey and lovely subject matter.

Art.

Pensive, waiting for some sort of sacrifice... moody with your trademark grain... Nicely done sir!

This has the air of the sacred and spiritual about it. A beautiful interpretation.

It feels like the circle is closing in. Something is about to happen. Quite an eerie feel to this. With the light in the circle one thinks (maybe just me), that it is the marker for an alien ship to land. Great image.
