photoblog image Duddo stone circle

Duddo stone circle

 

The Duddo stones are called Duddo Four Stones on OS maps but there are 5 of them now. They found one nearby and reinstated it. There was clearly a 6th (and maybe a 7th) but they are still missing. They are also known as the singing stones. If the wind is right the deep grooves in the rock can produce an interesting sound. 

 

Anyway, it is an amazing site and if the sky/light is right there are some great images to be had. This was taken on a very unpromising day but I quite like the result of a bit of twiddling. The yellow rape in the field beyond helps a lot.

You did a good job Paul, it has an otherworldly feel to it.
The image is just gorgeous! Nicely done!
