This will be moved to scraps soon.

A scouting mission to find this Dolmen, (Portal Tomb / Portal Grave / Burial chamber), initially failed when heavy rain hit on the initial trip with *Orca76. I returned two evenings later and again it rained when I arrived. However I forced myself from the car to find the monolith and as I got there the weather cleared up.

Only problem however was that the sun was setting in a bad spot, i.e. behind the monolith, and as the sky had completly cleared up of cloud come sunset, there was no interesting scene.

So here we have just a 'reference shot' from when the cloud was breaking up 2 hours before sunset. Stay tuned for a sunrise shot soon

I like this one. Of course the conditions could be better and it is not as dramatic as it could be but for a first visit this is a good attempt. Black and White!
