Photographer's Note

The Standing Stones at Calanish on the Isle of Lewis are said to be older than the more famous Stonehenge. From the air, the stones lie in a crucifix (or could it be based on the human form) with the remains of a chamber at the transept. No one knows why they are there or what they were used for. Nowadays those of a certain disposition dance around them naked on the summer solstice. I marvel at the effort required to raise these huge stones, some of which are 15 foot high. From a photographic point of view, I love the grain in the rock, making it almost like wood.
