On top of Stonehenge - The tenon on Stone 56

Looking down to 55, the fallen lintel and the Altar Stone

And the view across to the Great Trilithon top

  1. Fantastic shots!

    The distinctive curve in L-154 is obvious; frequently unnoticed from the ground.
    Lichens on the 'Dark Side' of -56.
    The offset tenon on -56, also rarely commented on.
    The Avenue tracking to the Heelstone, obscured from the ground.
    The break in S-55. (Which must have made quite a racket when she came down!)
    The oft-overlooked BS-67 under L-156, on which is seen one of the two incorrect topside mortices.

    Very impressive pictures!
