Stonehenge in context
This is a slightly different view to the others so far submitted. It is what you see from the verge of the A303 road - visitors are often surprised at how small the stones seem in the context of the rolling downland. This photo was taken less than an hour after the site had opened to visitors, already it is busy with tourists, the car parks full and coach parties arriving.
