Callanish Stones

By UBOAT  
A shot from my trip up to Harris in July. Was lucky with the weather for this shot, it was sunny but definitely not warm.
The picture shown is of the Callanish stones on the Isle of Lewis, part of the outer Hebrides of Scotland. The stones are an arrangement of standing stones placed in a cruciform pattern with a central stone circle. They were erected in the late Neolithic era, and were a focus for ritual activity during the Bronze Age.

I'm sure the experts have figured out how they stood these up on end so long ago.... still makes me scratch my head with a sense of wonder though. A Stellar shot!

It is quite amazing that these stones are still standing especially with the weather on the island.

Thanks for the comments.
