Stonehenge, this time the original

Last week’s post of Stonehenge replica from Washington, USA brought back memories of my visit to the original Stonehenge – located at Wiltshire, UK. This shot is from couple of years back and wish I had been shooting RAW then :)

As much as I like the replica here at Washington and the ability to walk around / inside the Stonehenge, it really can’t even get close to the experience of the original. Expected to be constructed some where between 3000 BC to 2000 BC, the true meaning of this ancient, awe-inspiring creation has been lost in the mists of time. Was it a temple for sun worship, a healing center, a burial site or perhaps a huge calendar ? How did they manage to carry the mighty stones, with only the most primitive of tools. Surrounded by all the mystery, Stonehenge never cases to impress.
