That is lovely, much better looking than I remember the stonehenge from when I visited about 12/13 years ago!!!

mind you I was with my moaning (now ex) husband at the time and he didn't want to be there, something about there being some football match on somewhere:o

Fantastic and brings back loads of memories!

I proposed to my Angela in the middle of Stonehenge, just the two of us in the middle of the stones at 6.00am. It was gorgeous with the early morning mist, and your picture has captured it very well! We also spent some of our honeymoon there, for the summer solstice but shared the stones with thousands of other people...it was the best party I have been too!

aww how romantic. When I went we weren't allowed anywhere near the stones, there were ropes all around a perimeter. I really wanted to stand in the middle of them!

You can apply for special access which gives you access to the stones before the general public arrive.

Question for Pepsi.....what is the story behind the picture, is it a commission, because the more I see it the more I want it!!!

More than welcome darl.
I think you were meant to have it in some strange way.
I only posted the pic of it because It wouldn't load into my profile album. Thought I would try loading a pic on new system.
You may never have looked in the album to see it.
The magic of the the henge at work ? :mf: weird or what ? LOL

I certainly believe in fate but agree there must be some other magic involved here. I think the henge must be calling me back for another much needed visit :D

Stunning painting... fantastic work Rita, I have often admired Stonehenge but never visited (yet!) but this painting makes me even more determined to visit one day.

It definitely sounds as though fate played a part in uniting Mick with this wonderful artwork... beautiful piece and an addition to your wonderful, romantic story of Stonehenge. Hope you manage to go back for a visit soon.

Pepsi, This picture is beautiful and as said already does put a very romantic slant to this mystical place. I have been to stone-henge many times and again longed to be amongst the stones (not just looking from a far). It does upset me though when they hold a Summer Solstice there and there are revellers climbing on the stones and strewing the place with cans and litter... To me it is a sacred place that should be respected ... people would not do that in church. Rant over lol.

A beautiful painting.... much admiration for your work.

Completely agree with the climbing on the stones etc, although thankfully it is the minority. Sadly this is the way of the world and happens all over the place; churches are climbed all over on a daily basis and lead ripped from their roof tops. Other places of historical interest (including churches) are left neglected to rot because daft council planning laws prevent investment. Other historical places are ripped up and lost forever to provide us with our shops and housing.

Thankfully though Stonehenge is still there, maintained and is available for all (especially for Summer and Winter Solstices). A few revellers climbing on the stones and litter once a year isn't the main concern, I would be more concerned about a future council authority wanting to stick a road through it, Oh and the effects of our environmental pollution on the stones.

Rant over lol
