Pentre Ifan, Newport

By woodini254    
Pentre Ifan is perhaps the finest surviving Neolithic tomb in Wales and forms one of a group of Portal Dolmens built around the tributaries of the Nevern Valley approximately 6,000 years ago. Its chamber is formed by a capstone of around 16 tonnes upheld on three uprights about 2.5m high at one end of a cairn some 30 m long.

A very different set of stones from this site - where do you start in such a place?

It's amazing how they have stayed in position for so many years. And just how did they build them? Great image.

A nicely composed image Rich, I do like how the eye is taken first to the stones and then beyond to that wonderful view. Makes you wonder how they managed to position the stones all those years ago. Informative narrative too, which makes you appreciate the image even more.

Nice one Rich, a great clear image and I love the sky
Have you thought about enhancing it a little with Aurora HDR software? You have the functions to play with the top and bottom of the picture.
