Artist's Description

Callanish Stones, Clachan Chalanais or Tursachan Chalanais, before sunrise.

Got up before 4 a.m. to be there on time. As the sun rose and the warm light came, it was simply amazing, standing there beside these huge stones that are one of the oldest prehistoric sites in Scotland (between 2900 and 2600 BC), it dates even from before Stonehenge. Incredible how people without modern machinery could create such monuments that have stood the test of time for thousands of years.

Location: Calanish, Isle of Lewis, Outer Hebrides, Scoltand, Uk
Nikon D70, Sigma 18-200mm. Post-processing: Contrasts, details, etc. in CS4 with ColorEfex Pro.
