#905 Stonehenge, England

File:Stonehenge2007 07 30.jpgOne of the most beautifully preserved relics from the Stone Age is that of Stonehenge -- large solid beautifully shaped rocks remain standing and with the tops of arches also being used. Unfortunately this also makes it a crazy tourist trap for every visitor. I always think of it as being the "first" UNESCO world heritage site, even if that isn't true it certainly embodies the soul of the idea.
My own photos of Stonehenge are film and are completely buried deep in my parents garage, so not much chance of seeing them any time soon, but these are from Wikipedia -- isn't the fish eye amazing? Most visitors don't get that image.
