|Description ||The low angle of light from the setting sun really brings out the texture in these massive stones. I shot these color images of Stonehenge on Fuji Velvia and scanned in the film. Of course Fuji isn't making this kind of film anymore.|
|Lovely picture. Fuji Velvia was just about the best film ever. So much for progress!|
|This is a great photo, I like the way you've gone for a portrait style rather than the more usual landscape shots of stonehenge.|
|Thanks for the comments. I did the portrait style 'cause I thought the clouds and sky was more interesting then the grass. I did take some B&W ones at the same time. Which do you like better?|
|I like the subdued colours in this one, its a great overall view with atmosphere. Was it really this deserted? I'm amazed that its possible to get such a great photo without people or fences/poles spoiling it. Haven't been here yet but slowly drawing up my plans!|
|Thanks for your comment Ken. I'll have to go back to my Film and see for sure. I did crop out someone on the left hand side of the photo, and I remember that my camera and tripod was over the fence to avoid it getting in the way.|
|The black and white ones are really good too. I liked this one, because using a portrait style appealed to me. You're right about the sky. When I was there, it was plain grey, with washed out light. I will have to return and try again!|
