Standing Stones

Callanish (Standing Stones) by Kammer Taken 1st August 2004: Stone number 9 viewed from the south, standing alone to the south west of the circle. One theory for the strange position of this stone is that it forms a lunar alignment with stone 34 (the tooth shaped stone).

In this photo you can barely see stone 34 (it's the largely obscured stone in the bright sunshine on the right of the shot). More obvious is the central megalith (number 29) and stone 47, both to the right of stone 9.
