Scorhill Under A Stormy Sky

Not the first image I’ve published from the this location and almost certainly not the last.

Stone Circles can be very hard to photograph with pleasing results, possibly because they look very plain, but also because often they don’t stand out well from their surroundings. What looks fantastic in an isolated location can end up looking like just a few rocks stuck in a field when photographed.

The day of our visit to Scorhill though things were very different – the light was great thanks to bright sunlight occasionally breaking through thick black cloud, the ground was wet with puddles forming and the grass was dry, giving the stones chance to show up against the background.

All I had to do then was try to get the composition I wanted and keep the kids out of the frame :)
