|Description ||Pole aerial view from the South-East showing the halfway exposed 17m x 4,35m chamber  and the oval enclosure. The covering barrow is largely removed as well as the drywalling. |
The position of the lateral entrance is marked "E". The passage is robbed except for one orthostat, but the positions of the 3 missing orthostats are marked with concrete implements.

| great pic martin how did you take this ?? was camera on a pole ?|
| I think Martin owns a cherry-picker. He takes it on holiday with him and takes overhead shots of these fantastic prehistoric sites. It's not the work of an amateur.|
| And there was me thinking he has a pogo stick ;-)|

Thank you very much RLDixon.
Of course it is far from being as excellent as your photography: Yes, camera is on pole.
In January 2008 Hamish Fenton started to submit his fabulous Kite Aerial Photos to the Megalithic Portal.
I got very fascinated by these aerial views as they are instructive and aesthically pleasing as well. As most of the sites where I live are surrounded by trees Kite Aerial Photography usually is not applicable. So I looked out for something else: I had a telescopic tent-pole, that fitted into the middle column of my old tripod: This allowed to reach a height of up to 6m when held with outstretched arms. I used this technique for a while , but then
, another TMP contributor told me about his good experiences with lighting stands. So nowadays I use telescopic lighting stand extensions, as they can be more easily transported (smaller and less heavy) esp. in rough/wooded terrain.
@Sunny100: Thanks for your very kind words, but of course I am just an amateur and do not have any Pro-equipment. But you are absolutely right: the camera on lighting stand extensions looks a bit like a cherry-picker ;)
@Runemage: Oh yes, after I crashed several cams when using the TCM („Thrown-camera-method“): Set self-timer and then throw the camera as high as possible I later tried out the mentioned PSM „pogo-stick method“. Unfortunately the results were quite disappointing: I not only crashed the camera but also myself. So I eventually settled on the (more boring) extension pole method.
| i have just noticed that there seems to be a yellow letter "E" about 1/3 in from the left and about 1/4 down from the top ?? leaning against one of the stones ...|
