An excellent, accurate depiction - right down to perspective.
However, as in the previous picture by AngieLake, Sunrise over the Heelstone doesn't actually happen quite this way.
Notice the space between L-130 & L-101. This tells us that the Aperture Stones lean out far enough to dislodge the joining on the Lintel-ends. A nice detail by a conscientious engraver.
These Stones (and several others) were righted and set in concrete beds in 1921.
