Photo of the Day: Stonehenge Under the Setting Sun

I’m back from my trip to the United Kingdom but it’s going to be a while before I am ready to start posting about it. In the meantime, here’s a teaser photo from my visit to Stonehenge. My group had a private viewing after the park closed at sunset. We were able to walk inside the circle of stones, which are normally roped off to the general public. To give you an idea of how far away most people must remain, this photo was taken from behind the ropes.

One cool aspect of Stonehenge is that it is still very much off by itself, unlike many other famous monuments that have cities built up around them. It was an incredible experience to move among these ancient stones, to lie down inside the circle and stare up at the sky as the sun continued its descent below the horizon. It was without a doubt the highlight of my time in England.
