Stonehenge by phoenix2k Stonehenge by phoenix2k
I finally got to see the mythical site of Stonehenge. I'd been dreaming about this moment all my life and I've even had a poster of it on my wall for years. This was my chance to take my own set of pictures and I have to admit I got a bit carried away =p Ended up spending a few rolls of film just capturing this site from different angles. This picture stood out quite nicely, but I'll probably submit a couple more after this.

The sky was covered with clouds and it could have been raining, but instead the sun kept popping back out and it eventually turned into a really nice day. There were people laying on the grass, others trying to jump over the rope that goes around the whole site. I just kept taking pictures and was amazed that we even got to the site in the first place :D

I had a vague idea of what the place would look like, but I couldn't really imagine having two roads on both sides (one of them being the highway!). They kind of ruin the whole view, but luckily it's situated on a hill so you can easily get shots where you don't see them at all. I also heard that they're planning to build a road under it to restore the original landscape, but god knows when that's gonna happen...

It was definitely worth going there if you've been holding back. You might be a bit disappointed but in the end the important thing is that you've been there yourself and walked on the same land as the ancestors who built that place.

Now I can finally start planning my trip to the pyramids in Egypt ;)

Incredible. I have loved that place for years. I, too, have been fascinated by Stonehenge for the last decade. And like you, I will be trying to get to the pyramids soon. :)

Well done man. Many thanks for sharing. :D
