Even more fascinating than Stonehenge. You found a great angle to shoot, with a beautiful sky. Nice work on the HDR. #1413067

Thanks Michelle and Jack! Jack I crawled under the rope fence and lay on the ground shooting upwards, used a rock for a tripod. Fortunately the guard looked more amused than upset. :-) #9717558

Dolmens, properly called Portal Tombs, mark burial places in a very distinctive way, with large capstones elevated at an angle and held up by huge standing stones. - HDR
