Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have just recently returned from a most enjoyable TE meeting in The Lake District.

Viviane (Porteplume) and her husband Chris were travelling around the north of England and invited us to meet up at a convenient venue. The North Lakes seemed perfect for myself and my husband Len, John, Mariusz, Mike and Will.

Viviane and Chris were a most amiable and hospitable couple, whom we liked immediately, and treated us to a mouthwatering meal at their caravan. (My husband was certain Viviane had access to a ready meal service, the selection and quality of the food was so good!)

After drinks and lots of good natured banter, and with the light quickly fading, we decided to quickly visit Castlerigg Stone Circle for some evening shots. There was a suggestion of 'sunsets' and 'red skies' but the clouds were thick and there was no such chance!

The stone circle at Castlerigg near Keswick in Cumbria, is one of the 1,300 stone circles in the British Isles and Brittany. It was constructed as a part of a megalithic tradition that lasted from 3,300 to 900 BC, during the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages.

Various archaeologists have commented positively on the beauty and romance of the Castlerigg ring and its natural environment. In his study of the stone circles of Cumbria, archaeologist John Waterhouse commented that the site was "one of the most visually impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain." -from Wikipedia.

The evening light certainly added mood to the photographs and I decided to present my main post in black and white. I will add a coloured shot, showing a wider aspect of the circle and its location, as a workshop.

Thank you for your interest, I wish you a happy day, Bev :-)
