CBC Day 11

Day 11 word prompt
This one was a little rushed. I used acrylics on my journal page. I copied this from a photo I took a couple of years ago.
I was taken to stonehenge on my birthday (winter solstice) by some friends. The stones are magnificant but the whole place was filled with tourists doing the 'stand in front of the stones holding their palms out thing' so the photos would look like they were holding the henge in their hands. To me, the stones are a very spiritual place, with deep significance to the pagan path. I longed for all the people to disapear so I could feel the power of the stones. I just wanted some HUSH! I managed to get a photo with the sun setting behind the stones and no people in the picture. To me this represents my kind of hush!

This is so beautiful Sam. I can't believe you say it's rushed. I know what you mean - I hate seeing people do that sort of stuff - especially in churches and abbeys where you see them climbing over things.

Just a gorgeous page.
