A Bit Of History

DSCN7787

I visited our museum park again one afternoon when it wasn’t as crowded as it was on Midsummer’s Eve when I was there last. Besides old wooden buildings, they also have a collection of reconstructions of ancient burial sites.

The Cist goes back to 2400 – 1500 BC.

The stone circle was common from the Bronze Age until the Viking age.

DSCN7785

More unusual is a triangular, sort of starlike shape from the Iron Age (~500-1050 AD).

These four photos are all straight-from-the-camera shots.
The light was a little difficult, both sunlight and shadow.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.







My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
