Standing stones, always a little mysterious...

Standing stones, always a little mysterious... 

The alignment of MONTENEUF is truly an exceptional site.

Des sites mystérieux un peu partout !! Nos ancêtres rendaient sans doute un hommage à leurs dieux pour que la Nature soit plus clémente avec eux !!!

Merci Marie-Claire, oui, je pense aussi que c'étaient sûrement des lieux de culte pour nos ancêtres lointains. En tout cas, ce sont des lieux fascinants, même aujourd'hui à les traverser, cela ne laisse pas indifférent.

Andy, and check the link I noted. It's a great site in the middle of the forest.

Thanks Peter. Excavations carried out since 1989 have enabled the discovery of 420 menhirs spread over seven hectares. It's remarkable - come and see;-))

micritter, when you are strolling there suddenly you think "these are 6500 years of history watching me" - somewhere it's weird....

Thanks Don. On this photo one doesn't realize if the standing stones are high or not (but they are: about 4-5 m).

Impressively. Amazing place. I looked this place on the google map and tried to see the water ... I did not find the water, maybe at the moment when Google took a picture, there was no water. But I found yet many such stones around nearby.
Thank you for the fascinating excursion.

Hello Sergey, you are right, there is no water within this site! What you see here is a bulge in a lying stone which was filled with rain water. And I knelt before it with my camera....

Vor 6500 Jahren war es vielleicht so etwas wie ein Auffangbecken für das Blut von Opfern, Tieren oder vielleicht sogar Menschen (war mein erster Eindruck als ich das Bild sah), da warst Du wirklich nah dran am damaligen Geschehen als Du den Auslöser gedrückt hast... Mystik pur!

Danke Karsten. Ja, da kannst Du Recht haben : ich dachte bei dem liegenden Stein auch an sowas wie eine Opferstätte. Ich bin mir sicher, dass es Dir hier auch gefallen würde - das ganze Gelände ist einfach total beeindruckend.

Vielen Dank Erich. Die Spiegelung kommt von einer kleinen Wasserpfütze auf dem liegenden Dolmen davor. VG, Christa (nicht Maria;-))
