Giant's Ring, Belfast Sunset 2 by Gerard1972 Giant's Ring, Belfast Sunset 2 by Gerard1972
The Giant's Ring in Belfast, Northern Ireland is an ancient henge. Situated near Shaw's Bridge, south of the city, the standing stone monument is surrounded by a circular earth bank, 200 metres in diameter and 4 metres high.

On an evening in August, the light is fading as the sun sets on a fine summer day. In the background is the near circular-looking tree which features in many of my shots of the henge.

I have warmed the sky colours up a little in post processing.

Best viewed at large size.

Gorgeous pic. The positioning of the rocks in the foreground and the tree in the background could not be more perfect. Can't quite put my finger on it, but it's like the separation of the two subjects frames the shot really well. And the colors/lighting bring it all together.

Wonderful work ^^

This is a lovely shot and composed really well. Theres a place in Carlow called the Dolmen, i think and its very similar. Sometime when i'm that far south I'll catch it at its best :) Your sky warmed up really well and you've kept a deep lushness in the grass. ..and then there's the tree :) really lovely, well done...
