Showing posts from March, 2017


After a very wet early morning it had started to dry out a little in Avebury, but the sun did not come out and the sky remained ominously cloudy. When I arrived the car park was empty but as time drew on more and more people came to walk around the stones and take in some of the atmosphere. I took photos at first using the Holga lens on my digital camera but then switching to a 'normal' view. I converted all of the pictures to monotone.

Stonehenge and Silbury Hill

In early March I went on a visit to Stonehenge arranged by the RPS. We were on an early morning (6.30) trip which English Heritage put on to allow direct access to the stones. Needless to say it was absolutely tipping down with rain.  There were some non photographers on the trip and it was difficult to get shots without people in the frame so I decided to go with the flow and include them in a more positive manner. Then to try and get something a little different I used a Holga lens. The trip had finished by 9.30 so I had some breakfast and then drove up to Silbury Hill and Avebury to continue along the same lines. The rain stopped and the people came out. However Avebury seemed a lot more atmospheric than Stonehenge. Here are the pictures from Stonehenge and Silbury Hill, Avebury to follow.
