Here are some favorite photos from the Neolithic stone circles of England and Orkney, visited in the last few years:
As the archaeologists will tell you, these circles of standing stones were intentionally placed in an already sacred landscape, hence the photos of Stonehenge sitting in its huge surroundings; the views of Castlerigg impossible without the Cumbrian mountains around it; and Brodgar’s placement between two lochs of fresh and saltwater, and sitting in a beautiful sea of blazing heather.
