Stones in Circle, Worshipping

From Orkney, one of the most interesting Stone Circles I've been around. I took several shots of various aspects; I think I may post them up now.
Because of the level of tourism it's hard to describe this place in terms of either BrĂ­ or Bua but I have to say I could imagine easily the drama of the place, at the right time.

I have to admit to feeling more bua on the sites in the Orkneys than anywhere else.

We had about two hours at this particular circle and so I was able to sit with my back against one of the stones to the far west. I was undisturbed for a good half hour and the energy was amazing.

I got so caught up in "feeling" the stones, I was nearly left behind when my group moved off.

we hadn't too much time there as we were hotly pursued by one of the day tripper coach loads, who were easily the rudest people I've ever encountered on a sacred site :) But there was certainly somethign there, i remember grasping at it through the camera, and I literally hid behind the camera walking around. Mark was driven demented, waiting for me, waiting for some bint to get out of the way so i could take a photo :)
Easily one of the more haunting places I've been though, despite the intrusions.
