Sam’s Ses Challenge #7: Circle

Welcome to this week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge.

Every weekend, Sam and I will pick a word or phrase as the theme for that week. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to post something Ses-related that you think fits with this week’s challenge. Your contribution can be anything you want, a photograph, a short story… anything. Click here to learn more.

The fun will be focused here on my blog, but feel free to play along on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Just be sure to link back to the challenge on whichever media you choose, to be sure Sam and I get to see it.

I hope you’ll join in.

This week’s Sam’s Ses Challenge theme is Circle.

Here’s my contribution:

img_0001The stones in the photo above form part of a Neolithic monument called Long Meg and her Daughters in Cumbria, northern England. Long Meg is a 12-foot-high standing stone, located beside a circle of smaller stones (her daughters),  which measures about 350 feet in diameter.

Legend has it that Meg was a witch and that she and her daughters were turned to stone for dancing on the Sabbath.

Below are a few more photos taken when we paid our respects to Long Meg and her Daughters a couple of weeks ago. At this time of year, the early morning Sun stays low in the sky, casting some wonderful shadows even longer than Meg herself. And the approaching storm clouds (the rain set in not long after we left) just add to the magical atmosphere.

    bella scelta per un cerchio di pietre 🙂
