The stone circle is about 5000 years old and today consists of 38 stones of varying size.
I’ve seen it in good and bad weather and don’t know which atmosphere to prefer.

Sheep at Castlerigg Stone Circle

Sheep grazing in front of Castlerigg Stone Circle

It seemed as though the sheep (unlike tourists) would not really like to wander within the ring. Cosmic energy? Training? Or do they just perceive the stones a sort of solid barrier?

An unfair comparison

Comparing an analogue and a digital photograph

Cloud, photographed with a Minolta Dynax 9 on Fujichrome Velvia
How often have I seen a beautiful sky and could not capture it - except in my mind? When I was in Carlisle, I had the luxury to have two cameras with me: my Minolta Dynax 9 (or Maxxum 9 in the US) and a very small point-and shoot Panasonic Lumix FX8 digital camera.

I was quite happy with the result produced by the Panasonic, but I very much prefer the result I got back from the lab when my slide was developed.

Actually, apart from the fact that the SLR camera is much bulkier and heavier, it also has a spot meter, which explains the much more dramatic sky. I did underexpose a bit with the Panasonic as well, but I guess to a much lesser degree (one of the disadvantages of analogue photos: no EXIF data…

Castlerigg Stone Circle

The Castlerigg Stone Circle, near Keswick, Lake District
There are many little known stone circles found on the British Isles.
This one is only a short walk from Keswick, a pleasant town in the heart of the English Lake District.
The Castlerigg circle may be much smaller in size than Stonehenge, but the setting with its 360 degree panorama is simply breathtaking and its much less touristy than other rings.
