These were taken with EOS5D MKIII and 24-105F4L with two triggered Calumet flashes on stands (manually set) on stands....originals in 2015 and reprocessed today in LR.....the last one is natural light only

I had two goes at this on consecutive days ....the fist time I got the timing wrong in terms of sun set time....the second time it all came together.

I thoroughly recommend a visit if you get a chance....

Unusual and well taken photos. For me, the best is the second shot -

Interesting photos and interesting subjects. I am unfamiliar with this place.
Are these natural formations or a megalith site?
I just looked this up online, what a wonderous looking Henge site.

It’s a great area to visit....it’s a ditch and bank, opposite way around to that at Stonehenge.....much much bigger in area, stones around the edge, stone features within and two avenues leading to a smaller circle and stone feature....Europe’s largest ’pyramid’ Silbury hill is nearby all in easy walking distance...the pub in Avebury is also good!

Last one is my pick.
Love Avebury, stayed there some years back staying in the Old Vicarage within the "Stones", was a magical atmosphere and agree the pub (red Lion) is wonderful.

Nice pics. :)

Here's a quick snap a girlfriend took about ten years ago with my phone. I had taken her and a couple of friends for a flight around the area - not one of them had a camera. :rolleyes:

I think the shadow (it was late afternoon) shows the ditch up well.

For me the second image is far superior to the others. So we all see things differently. How did you get the light on the stones. Is that just editing?

I used two speedlites on tripods close to the stones, just out of view, and triggered them using a remote trigger on the camera hot-shoe.....that way I could stand 30meteres back and compose. I used manual setting following trial and error.

I see. It is the composition too that makes that image.
