Sunshine on Stonehenge

Such a majestic mystery.

Such a majestic mystery.

My last day in England was majestic.

One of the last places I visited to was the famous Stonehenge. It’s a prehistoric monument known for its huge standing stones set within earthworks.  Estimated to be built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, it is believed to be used to tell the time by watching the sun’s position on the horizon and its alignment with the stones. Where the stones really came from and how the people during this period managed to lay them out in a fashionably purposeful manner still remain a mystery to this day. 

I was with my mom during this out of town trip to Wiltshire. It was already her second time to visit the spot and all she was telling me was how terrible her first experience was because of the weather. Fortunately, the universe conspired to give me a good last hooray (and give Stonehenge a second chance to impress my mom). While the climate still required my tropically-accustomed body to have four layers of garments, the sky was clearing up and the sun was reflecting brightly on my sunglasses, an item which I never expected to ever utilize throughout my winter trip.

Stonehenge has been well documented through different photographs that capture its appearance during different times of the day, but this one was taken between 2:00 – 3:00 PM. ♥
