I don’t usually do simple photo posts but in Thursday on one if my guided tours, we happened to be at Stonehenge at dusk. Due to the latitude of the British Isles, dusk can be anything from about 11pm in mid summer to 3pm or earlier in mid winter.
Around 1.5 million people visit Stonehenge every year and in the summer it can be packed out. One if the advantages of visiting in winter is that you have it all to yourself. There were Foyr people there apart from us when we left the stones.
Stonehenge is on the vast Salisbury Plain, essentially prairie or Steppe land and in the winter it blues a freezing wind and there is no shelter from the elements. Even on a sunny mid November day, we were all thoroughly frozen by the time we got back but everyone thought it was well worth it for these marvellous stmosoheric photos.
With the low sun, streaming through the stones, it was thoroughly breathtaking. You’d never know there had been a freak hail storm a few minutes earlier.
