Callanish Stones - Isle of Lewis, Scotland 2000
"One of the most spectacular megalithic monuments in Scotland and a personal favourite in the British Isles. We chased the sunset west hitching a ride across the island with a local, I ran up the hill to get this stunning shot."
Shot on 35mm film and digitally re-mastered for optimum effect. Some analogue film texture can be seen in print which adds to the beauty of the image.
The Callanish Stones are a unique setting of standing stones erected around 2000 BC that form the shape of a Celtic cross. The centre circle contains the tallest of all (4.75m/15 ft 6 in) with three single rows of stones to the east, south and west, and a double row to the north. An aerial view reveals it's shape of the Celtic cross.
