Giant's Ring, Belfast VIII by Gerard1972 Giant's Ring, Belfast VIII by Gerard1972
The Giant's Ring in Belfast, Northern Ireland, is an ancient site centred around a neolithic 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. It is an Area of Significant Archaeological Interest.

This is a close-up of the henge, late on a December afternoon, shortly before sunset. I wanted to capture the interesting textures in the stone, and the low light helps to bring this out as well as casting a warm light over the surface.

I think this is one of my favourite shots of the Giant's Ring so far.

(Replaced this deviation with a sharper version which has adjusted colours.)

Best viewed large.
