What a special place to visit. Chris took us to some stone circles and they fascinate me. Fabulous picture and I love the scene.

Aaaah... now can you possibly leave such a lovely place as this? I've never been t o Stonehenge (and don't particularly want to) but the stone circles elsewhere in the UK are magical places. Like the light on the distant feels in this.
Frank L Croston.: I visited Stonehenge many years ago, when you could walk amongst the stones, like you I'm not bothered now, I much prefer the 'wild 'ones. We were lucky with the weather that day.
I have not been here Frank. You certainly make them look good.
Frank L Croston.: It must be one of the few places you haven't, Andrew! Thank you, this was actually my first visit to them.
My goodness what a low-hanging cloud! The light beyond is lovely.
Frank L Croston.: It does appear that way, Mary. we were lucky with the weather that day.
I took a group of images from almost this actual spot a few years ago, it is a beautiful view across the stones and up the valley beyond, just as your picture shows.
Frank L Croston.: This was actually my first visit...And Elizabeths, we were lucky, in that the weather was good and there was hardly anyone there.
Very atmospheric!
Frank L Croston.: A wonderful place, Tom.Thanks.
Something outlandish is about to happen...
Frank L Croston.: You never know in these stone circles, Larry !
A fine capture... Even the clouds cooperated to add to it's magic.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Jacquelyn, great weather that day.
