    What a wonderful perspective! This stark skyline of neatly aligned stones along side of a line of neatly aligned people coming to see the neatly aligned stones in awe and wonder!

    Your imagery captures Stonehenge the way it looks most of the time. It’s pretty haunting in the mist.

    What’s very interesting is that the people that are lined up – many of whom are carrying umbrellas – actually reflect the way the stones are arranged! Good eye for capturing this!

    The enormous expanse of cloudy sky makes Stonehenge appear like a child’s building blocks, and the tiny people like dolls. What an unusual view of this timeless icon – one only Ellen could imagine. The moody grays richly enhance the effect of the scale.

    I absolutely adore this photo – especially the line of people vs stones. I like to think it might’ve always looked this way throughout time, especially when it was used. Such a fantastic perspective on such an incredible piece of history.

    The tourists with their umbrellas beautifully mirror the capstones. Love the shades of gray.

    Looks so cold and gray. Makes me want a hot cup of tea!

    I agree with everything above. A really great photo!

    My apologies for the late entry, Ellen. This is a great photo. It’s all about the scale to me, and at first I thought of ants lining up to approach a large grouping of stones. But they have umbrellas, so the reality then set in and I focused on how imposing this assemblage must have been to visitors long ago. Well done, as always.
