Castlerigg Stone Circle remembered

One of the advantages of painting over photography is you don't have to be there to record an image!
The last time I was here was oh so many years ago, but years don't matter here nothing changes except the sky and the stones slowly sinking into the earth.
Castlerigg stone circle in Cumbria is without doubt my favourite, it out shines Stonehenge, which to me is naught but a tourist attraction now.

This circle stands on a plateau surrounded by ancient Cumbrian peaks, alone with nothing but the wind and the ravens calling for company.

It takes your breath away.
I hope I have done it justice.

ps The scanner cut off a bit of the left side!
