Photos: Castlerigg Stone Circle

A trip to photograph the stone circle at Castlerigg near Keswick in the northern Lake District.

The stone circle at Castlerigg near Keswick

I paid a quick visit to the stone circle at Castlerigg in the hope of a good sunrise to light up the furrows that lie in front of it. When that didn’t happen I took to exploring a few different compositions and experimenting with compressed perspective.

My favourite view of the stone circle; if you are lucky enough to get a good sunrise during spring and autumn it lights up the furrows in the foreground – alas no such luck today.

Castlerigg and Low Rigg

A good example of compressed perspective: shooting at 70mm allows you to pull Low Rigg closer to the camera creating a more intimate composition.
