Hello Folks.

The Browneshill Dolmen is a portal tomb dating from c.3300 – 2900 B.C. It has a very large granite capstone measuring 4.7 metres x 6.1 metres x 2 metres. The capstone rests on two portal stones, a door stone and a prostrate slab. The dolmen or cromlech is a type of pagan sepulchral monument. The capstone is the largest to be found in Europe. It has been calculated to weigh over 100 tons.

Hope you will like it.

I think it's probably appropriate to acknowledge the source of your note - if for no reason than showing due respect to the original author!

Certainly a very impressive feat to place the stone at that point, and your capture is effective too- good placement in the frame and a striking dynamic between light and shadow.


Boa noite Janek
Very well placed your dolmen in the composition, good on focus, good whie balance and interesting theme.
Um abraço
