|Description ||Stones in the South Circle viewed from the south-east quadrant bank. From left to right, stones 103, 102, 101 and 105. The small concrete post marks the position of missing stone number 104. The tower of St James church is in the background.|
| Jim, I don't remember the church looking as close as this in real life, so is it some kind of 'foreshortening effect' because of the camera setting? The addition of a figure in this makes the stones look even more imposing.|
| The church is about 330 metres from these stones (I measured it on a map) - the reason it looks so close is the 'compression' effect of using a zoom lens. It is also a bit blurred because of the long exposure in the dim light. There were plenty of people around on this chilly afternoon to give some scale to the stones.|
| Aaahh, thanks for the explanation. Yes, there usually are loads of people around, but it looked as if you just posed this one. I found a summer evening better for photography with just sheep there!|
