Photo of the Week: Stonehenge by Local Guide chiWing ko

Every year, people travel to Stonehenge to view the light of the setting sun during the winter solsticethe first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. The landmark is a popular place to celebrate because its stones beautifully align with the winter solstice’s sunset.

 

This Photo of the Week nicely captures the wonderful light of the setting sun at Stonehenge. It was taken by Local Guide chiWing ko.

@Christina-NYC thank you for great post. It is an amazing shot of Stonehenge by chiWing ko indeed.

Ever since started learning about mythology and history, I marked Stonehenge as a place must to visit like some other places,  for instance, Pyramid, Great Wall of China, Machu Pichu, Indus Valley etc.

Stonehenge is one of my favourite site and capturing a fragment of it during the winter solstice is pure magic.
