Most people are fascinated by stone circles, standing stones and megalithic tombs. Who built them and how and why? How have they survived for so many years (unfortunately, some haven’t but that’s another issue)? Huge amounts of research have been inspired by these questions. At the end of the day they look beautiful and it is magical to be in their presence. In the west of Ireland we are lucky to have many examples, a few of which I am including today. I have used Photoshop to give the images an “antique” look which seems appropriate considering their age.
