A few shots from Stonehenge which we stopped at on the way home - you can walk all around it and there were hundreds of people there so getting people out of shot was somewhat of a 'challenge'

Tried a couple of monos, not sure if they work

I think that last image looks good but it doesn't carry enough detail. I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of boosting the contrast and added just a drop or two of saturation.

The second last photo is amazing. Stonehenge against a wonderful 'clouded' sky is my favourite.

Stonehenge was a MUST DO for Donna on our UK trip in 2007. Our dear friend Slowhand and his lovely DW drove us down there and dear Wendy and her wonderful DH met us there. We had a great time together.

It was the first time I had gone since I was about 8 years old - they dont let you up to the stones now as so many idiots were graffiting them - as a result you get alot of crows nestting which definitely adds to the magical feel - Lisa had never been and was impressed - they boys liked the sacrifice stone :D

I love the b&w shot, I can just imagine being there on a wild and windy day. Thank you. :)
