Twilight at Castlerigg Stone Circle

Whipping chill wind and freezing clear weather were perfect for a twilight trip to Castlerigg Stone Circle – just me and Rosie Posie. Hector working in India is baking in 30 degree heat! Its his birthday today so I am having a Cobra beer for him this evening.

Rosie was so cold and shivering – even in her fleece jacket – that I took her back to the car and stayed a little longer taking photos at the circle alone.

In such perfect weather and light conditions it was a joy to spend the twilight hour at Castlerigg Stone Circle.

It was very cold though and the freezing wind chill was biting.

The conditions were perfect for taking pictures. I hope they are worthy of some others I see of Castlertigg that are really stunning.

When I loaded up the photographs I felt I had caught the colour and detail in the these stones ok. The setting sun gave them a warmth that you don’t see at any other time of day. Not one image has had a single bit of manipulation – which is unlike me as I often adjust exposure or curves or saturation.
