Devil's Den

06/01/2022
This reconstructed Neolithic dolmen on the Marlborough Downs comprises the entrance stones to a now lost prehistoric long barrow, which was built with its entrance facing midwinter sunrise. I went in the hope of photographing hard overnight frost and a colourful sky as a weather front arrived from the south-west. The cloud thickened slightly earlier than forecast and I was fortunate to see the Sun for 30 seconds on the horizon, just enough time to photograph a sunburst through the dolmen.
