With recent plans of taking some time out for photography being scuppered, and in need of a ‘fix’, I headed off to Stonehenge; it’s not far and makes for a great focal point! There are usually far too many people circling the stones so I wait until the site is closed and ‘work around’ the fences. This time I found that my preferred shooting spots were out of bounds owing to works for the new visitor centre. Pacing up and down the perimeter fence a few times (under the suspicious glare of the security guards!) I eventually found an alternative spot and set myself up ….. only for the promising looking evening sun to disappear behind a rolling mass of dark clouds and my planned vibrant sunset to become a long exposure mono. Oh well – c’est la vie!
