Shadow Shot # 14

These shadow shots were taken on the hill overlooking Glen Innes in the Northern NSW highlands.

They were erected in 1988 to commemorate the Celtic settlers to the area. There are over 30 standing stones, all significantly positioned and representative of different things.

While they are not quite as moving as Stonehenge, the surrounding bush is beautiful and they were fun to play hide and seek around!

Head on over to Hey Harriet for more Shadow Shots.

Happy Sunday!

These are interesting! I'd want to climb them them & sit on top. Did you do that? You discovered some fun things during your week away. I'm now wanting to explore more 'country' Australia. I usually only visit the cities. Have a great Sunday Ali :)

Love the story behind your stone shadows!

And the shadows themselves are fascinating!

Very interesting shadow shots of the standing stones. I regret not reading this post before sending my last email to you about my embarrassing discomfort with using certain words and flash backs of Austin Powers. You probably know what I'm talking about because I'm sure you'll read my email before reading my comment here. You can just put it down to another one of my unspectacular quirks :-)

I love these shots - especially the last one, the way the tree branches are casting their shadows on the rock. Sounds like you had a fantastic week. I'm very envious!!

My favorite thing about SSS is getting to see the world. Thanks for sharing! I love the one with the shadows of tree branches across the stone. Have a good week.
