Ring of Brodgar, Orkney by Santiago Arribas Pena

Ring of Brodgar, Orkney

"Maeshowe Chambered Cairn. Maeshowe is the finest chambered tomb in north-west Europe and more than 5000 years old." This is part of a series of images of the Neolithic Sites on Orkney I took for Historic Environment Scotland. It's a difficult site to photograph as there is a fence around it and from outside it just looks like a small mount. I took some images of the cairn in the morning but I wasn't very happy with them so I returned in the evening to find the that the light and the sky were just perfect!
