Photographer's Note

Captured just before sunrise the gibbous moon descends behind the ancient stones of Castlerigg near Keswick in England. This is one of the most visually impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain and is the most visited stone circle in Cumbria. One can only wonder what part the celestial bodies played in the pagan ceremonies and rituals that have taken place here.
