Photographer's Note

The ancient Callanish Stones are older than Stonehenge and appear to be a calendar system that is based on the position of the moon (rather than the sun like many other formations).

This was shot with a graduated tobaco filter, but the colors were too overpowering with orange and bright green grass, so I desaturated the image to give it a serious feeling again.

The weather at this time was brutal winds and pelting rain. The advantage of this is it kept the tourists away, even though I think there might be someone else sheltering out of view here behind one of the stones.
