Castlerigg Stone Circle, Lake District

macuser's picture

Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of the most visually impressive prehistoric monuments in Britain. The stone circle is on the top of a low hill with views across to Skiddaw, Blencathra and Lonscale Fell. It’s composed of 38 stones and within the ring is a rectangle of a further 10 standing stones.

This location is suited to sunrise, not only because of the orientation of the hills but also because it gets incredibly busy with tourists, so it’s definitely work the effort to get there early. Photographing the circle can be difficult as it is really wide wide and set on a mound, hence there are few suitable viewpoints. As a result a wide-angle lens is almost essential unless you isolate some individual stones (maybe with a macro lens) and capture some of the long shadows they cast. It’s most visually impressive when there’s a blanket of mist, or a snow covering, shot with the Naddell Valley behind it. Alternatively I'm sure it would make a good location for astrophotography. Remember this is a popular place with both photographers and tourists, so choose your time to visit wisely.
