Stonehenge, August 2010

Amazing stones, amazing construction, amazing density of digital camera's in the middle of nowhere (this was on a Monday!). These images were taken by a camera lofted by a kite.

Security was not amused: when the kite flew about 2 minutes I was asked to take it down; which I did very carefully to avoid injuries ;-)

B.t.w. I am very satisfied with the PFK (the kite I used: Paul's Fishing Kite, bought at http://www.kapshop.nl1)). It is very easy (read quick) to launch, and has proven to be very reliable. I wish they had a 'stealth' model made of transparent fabric…


Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi) west of Amesbury and 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) north of Salisbury.

Stonehenge is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. It is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Archaeologists had believed that the iconic stone monument was erected around 2500 BC
