Stag Lord in Mono + Two New : Stonehenge Winter Solstice 21.12.12. Druids

By UrbaneMagick
Good morning all.

Well, here is a photo of The Stag Lord, on eof the main figures in the Dorset based Dolmen Grove Pagan group of Dorset.

Not connected with the Druids, they are their own Pagan group , one of many who celebrate the four Solstices at Stonehenge.

Thre are many other events in the Pagan calendar, but English Heritage won;t allow people in for anything other than the Solstices thaT BEING ONLY THROUGH kING aRTHUR's(wARBAND dRUID LEADER) court actions (European).

The following variants are the Dolmen Grove dancing within the stones at daybreak....the blur is intentional to get the feeling of movement as it was so dark, they would have become lost.

Have a great day,

Gareth Smile

He makes a very good b&w - strong features, strong character. Good conversion in V1, and V3 is suitably weird.
Re V1 - id get rid of the little white dot on the leather cap before 'putting this one to bed'.

Hi Moira,

the little white dot is a remnant of the ash on his hat floating around from all of the bonfires..I was coated in it!!
.... camera also took a hit with it :-(

Thankyou everyone for your votes & comments Smile

Ah - that's that Taloch bloke isn't it, from that group of pretend Pirates! Someone's been at the dressing up box Wink

Seriously like v3. The sense of movement is fantastic.
