Artist's Description

It never ceases to thrill me when I walk around monuments such as Auchagallon on the island of Arran when I realise that some 3 – 6,000 years ago there was a group of people standing here looking at the results of their colossal labours. After all the skilled study of the archaeologists, we still little or no idea why they were built.
They are objects of great beauty and fascination to me so you will have to bear with me when I upload lots of angles and views of standing stones and cairns!!!
This particular Bronze-Age monument is even more of a mystery in that it is a cairn and a stone circle in one neat package. Amazingly, it has yet to be excavated!

In this case I have de-saturated the sky to add a bit of impact to the shot…
