Wanted to get a nicely lit, clean shot of this well-photographed landmark. The weather and sky were excellent so tried to make the most of them.

It was quite early so not so many tourists about, but I still had to zap about 6 or 7 in Photoshop afterwards! Can you tell where they were?!

English Heritage don't let you get too close nowadays, unfortunately. But because the sky and weather were providing such a nice backdrop I was quite happy to show the stones in their full surroundings.

Colours - no polariser and hardly any tweaking in PS afterwards. These fantastic colours come (consistently) courtesy of the Mamiya lens. (Velvia helps, but the lens gives great saturation with other films too.)
