Roadside View of Stonehenge, Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire.

Scroll down to content


Its been quite a while, since we had passed by this ancient moment, Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire, on our way to Dorset & Devon.  So up came the camera, and I started shooting through the car window, while asking if husband would be so kind as to slow, just a little bit…..and just a little bit it was.  Luckily the rain had stayed away, so the screen was dry, which helps when shooting through the front windscreen.  Anyway, the stones did look like they were growing out of the landscape, and maybe how they might have looked to ancient man, walking cross the plain and seeing them in the distance.  I visited many years ago, when you were allowed inside the ring and could touch, but I like to see them from a distance, they look majestic from afar.

One of the most important survivals of prehistoric England, Stonehenge.


Stonehenge, prehistoric stone circle monument, cemetery, and archaeological site located on Salisbury Plain, about 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. It was built in six stages between 3000 and 1520 bce, during the transition from the Neolithic Period (New Stone Age) to the Bronze Age.

  1. I wonder if there is any culture in the world today that is unaware of Stonehenge. With cell phones and the internet, I doubt it. What an incredible icon. Well captured, Lynne.

    1. Thank you Pat and I think you might be right. It does take your breath away, when you come over the brow of the hill and its just there. It looks so much better, as I think they have covered over a road that was near it and there are no buildings near it now, so it just sit in the landscape so well 🙂

  2. You did well from a moving car, Lynne! The first b&w one especially is excellent. Love seeing Stonehenge – long-ago memories of it, but they are treasured.
