A view of the sun setting behind the Neolithic monuments at the "Plague Market" on Dartmoor.

This is two exposures sandwiched together to try and keep at least some of the stone-rows of the monument visible. Bit tricky to get this right, especially as the silly sun kept moving between shots so see what you think.

Regards John.

England is so rich and therefore is famousfor hermenhirs, dolmens, megaliths and monoliths, alllooking so mysterious!Thus, thebest time to shoot them should be early in the morning or the evening hours aswe see above, andmerging two shots of different exposuresis a cooltechniquehelpingvisibility. Nothing to disturb the eye indeed. Well done mate!

Just beautiful. Truly the spirit of the past is capture in this photo. I saw Stonehenge in the early morning in pouring rain (therefore no other tourists around!) and it was magical. Wish I could have gone back and seen it at sunset. Thanks for sending this. You would never know the sun had been so obstreporous!!

Its a very nice composition John. The stones lead your eye to the horizon, then up into that great sky
