One of my favourite places. I'm a fan of standing stones and this is so special.

I agree Jean these stones give a unique feeling and atmosphere, the only other place we have visited that comes close is Kilmartin Glen, we did also visited Callanish two and three but they do not have same aura.

My favourites after Callanish are the Orkney stone circles and Long Meg and her daughters near Penrith. Both worth visiting if you haven't been.

Thank you Rainer, Callanish is really quite mystic and atmospheric and having visited both these in my opinion are more worthy of attention than Stonehenge but they are better for being remote and therefor quieter.

I love your composition Roger................I wonder if the people who erected the stones realised they would make lovely leading lines for when they were photographed in the future?

They look splendid in the sunshine and I love the green and earthy colours in the landscape. The sky is lovely! It's easy to see how some of the stories and legends came about - there must be quite a mystical atmosphere there.

An interesting link too...........the place has an intriguing history!

HFF to you............I hope you have a very enjoyable weekend.

Thank you for the terrific comments Keith, I have a thing about standing stones and the like but non of the many has had an atmosphere or mystic feeling like these, the place just made the hairs on the neck stand up, A return visit is an absolute must.
