|Description ||Site in Cornwall: this lens aboration had us running down to the stone to check what was going on! as it made our hearts skip a beat. What happened was a refractive image of the sun to the right being superimposed on the stone plus clouds - no photoshop used.|
| Spooky but beautiful - well captured. Looks as if it is ready for take-off!|
One of my all time favourite sites.
| I've never seen anything like this before. It's beautiful.|
What camera and lens were you using?
| The camera was a Nikon D80 with a f2.8 sigma 70-200 lens. Note the cap stone follows the contour of the hill and the small blip on the horizon is where the marker is and is also where the hole on the top is.I have only recently noticed that the gate stones and pointer stone also line up with the hill terrain|
| After seeing where the sun went down I should have looked more carefully at the map as I wonder what the allignment of west lanyon and lanyon quoit would have been.september perhaps another trip is required.Please tell all it would be interesting if others have more info.|
| I think a more precise representation would have been bracketted at 3 stops and a neutral density (prob nd8) on the sky.This would have probably eliminated the chromatic aberration here.|
| I will try the filter but I doubt a normal image would have been so intriguing.|
| hi could i have a copy i want to look at something enlarged i have a series of images but not of stones that are the same, i will send you one but they are weird|
