I was shooting at the Stonehenge Monument replica in Southern Washington today and decided to do a couple shots for the challenge. It was a bright sunny day. The first two shots have white balance set to incandescent. The third has WB set to cloudy which is the setting I normally use outdoors.

The Stonehenge replica is located in Southern Central Washington on a high bluff overlooking the Columbia River. This one is made from concrete while the original in the UK is made from solid rock.

Nikon D100, Sigma 17-35mm lens, hand-held.

While the incandescent mode is not accurate, I really like the color it made the stone and ground. If one did not know the actual color, they'd have no reason to believe it was incorrect.

Like Carsick said, if one did not know the difference between the shots I sure would've gone with the first two shots and left it at that.

As I understand it, it is the exact size of the original. See my Stonehenge album on Photobucket at the link below. There is a photo of a sign in front of the monument that gives information about it.

It's OK Cal, I guessed it was the same, as it is a replica. Just teasing about everything being bigger in the States. Than here anyway. You know, bigger buildings, bigger cars, bigger burgers, bigger most everything :-)

Some great shots in your album Cal .

Stevekin.

it's quite likely it didnt start off looking like that, it's highly possible/probably that stonehenge had another ring or 2 rings of piles but in wood, it's thought that there was almost a whole wooden building round it.
