The best way to describe this small photo trip to Stonehenge is :

"I love it when a plan comes together!"

Last year, prior to visiting the Mach Loop in Wales, we did an attempt to visit the old ruins from Stonehenge located near Amesbury in the UK. Driving there we noticed the massive amount of tourists there and decided to drive on. Now being close due to visiting Yeoviltion Airshow we took  our chance for a second attempt!

But what the heck is Stonehenge?

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3 km) west of Amesbury. It consists of a ring of standing stones, with each standing stone around 13 feet (4.0m) high, 7 feet (2.1 m) wide and weighing around 25 tons. (Wikipedia)

How did we do it?

Well I will share it with you :-) Stonehenge has a visit centre where you can park your car and walk the walk to the standing stones. The 'challenge' for me and my dad was to photograph Stonehenge with our big tele primes. We used 'The Photographers' Ephemeris' App to pick a good spot and aligned the sunset with the standing stones from Stonehenge. Highly recommended! We parked (here) our car close to the road and walked to the spot pinned via the App.

The App clearly was our winning step to succes! Stonehenge is worth a visit to check it out, and especially with a camera to photograph the 'old rocks'.

We had a blast getting the shot we wanted and finding the spot. Don't forget that locating and finding a spot for a possible to picture is an adventure by it self!
