Großer Boitiner Steintanz submitted by weldersdog- : Satelite image from one of the 4 close by stone circles of Boitin. The picture got some make up from me to make the circle more visible. This stone circle lives in a dense forrest and so it is good luck to get the view at it from space. ( cirle is aroud 13 meters in diameter) The original picture can be seen at: geoportal-mv.de
