Something that I cherish....English heritage.
I've been away for the weekend, hence I haven't been commenting or posting. But on the way back I passed this and it fitted the Friday Theme.
Stonehenge, 4,500 years old and still standing.

Bom dia Robert.
This one was 'on the fly' or, rather, on the target.
Besides being something to cherish these ruins in my view can only be photographed in BW.
And you made a respectable BW shot with great light, clearly present, yet, beautiful tones and textures.
Nice idea to inaugurate the "resurrection" of Friday theme.


Stonehenge and its secrets, a superb and fascinating heritage.
The black and white is an interesting choice that enhances the mystery.
I really like this atmosphere.

Hi Bob,
The B&W works well for this kind of scene and surprised there were not more people around. There does appear to be a bit of a white halo around the edges of the boulders but it may just be the weather

Hi Bob,
The black & white is a good choice and the high definition has shown the ancient details to perfection. I like composition and low angle, great job.

A very good choice of the B/W for a suggestive view of the textures !

Hello Bob,
I prefer this B&W to the Coloured version,
after 50 odd years in Denmark, England is
still "Home". This shot makes homesick in
a good way.
Thank You.

Hello Bob

I looked at both, and much prefer the B/W capture.so much more dramatic. Nice
