Setting out from Birchover we drove the few miles to Arbor Low stone circle, just off the A515 near Monyash and Parsley Hey. The weather started out overcast and after parking up and walking about a mile on a limestone cobbled farm track, the weather got grimmer and grimmer. Finally when we reached the Abor Low Henge and Barrow, we were hard pushed to see the other side of the limestone henge. The stones would have originally been erect but sometime in the past they have been deliberately knocked over because a few people were fearful of something they didn't understand; hence destruction was their most effective weapon. This is a shame as that is how the lyths are seen today.
The photograph was taken from the far side of the henge with the tripod mounted on a burial mound. The mist drifted in and out and this was the clearest shot we could acquire. I must admit with the fog up there it had a special kind of atmosphere, very spooky indeed, yet serene and peaceful. I hope you enjoy this limited edition Monochrome print and hope that we have managed to capture some of the atmosphere from a photo-chellenging day.
As always, the maximum print run will be 10, each print accompanied by a signed and nomber coded Certificate of Authenticity.
