Stone Circle

Castlerigg (Stone Circle) by Hob Light Art Performance Photography (a.k.a. 'Waving torches at things') at Castlerigg on the evening of 13/08/09.
And before anyone starts wondering why it's not in the 'Artistic/interpretive' category of image here on TMA, that's because it's a photograph. Nothing has been added in by editing software, just a bit of colour tweaking during conversion from RAW format.

More examples of the same kind of thing at some other sites can be seen at

The other photo is rather lovely too. What self-respecting stone circle wouldn't want one of those at its centre? I think you may find a queue of people commissioning you to travel the country. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Cheers youse :) It's good fun to do, and it can help clear a bit of space at a crowded site. There were actually quite a few people there that night, due to some meteor shower being overhead. Hob Posted by Hob

really great picture, mad thing is there is a light there behind the stone with the spiral, me and a friend saw it, [we had had a massive blast of salva, but i can assure you it was really there, i never said anything to my mate, to see if he would see it indepenpently, he certainly did!!!!!],i think this is the reason your pictures have an element of real truth about them! you could make callanish look fucking amazing. Thanks, i really enjoy your pictures, have you thought about a book, i would definitely buy it, you could call it "megalithic lights", now that would be hitting the nail on the head. bladup Posted by bladup
