Mysterious Machrie Moor on the island of Arran

I added a few stars and a slight topaz glow to this infrared image.

And here are a few glimpses of other beautiful and mysterious places from my travels

    Exceptional work Cybele!You have so softly but effectually edited the first one!
    The little distant stars in the night sky and the glow you added,gave it an extra dimension!The Rosslyn chapel is also great 🙂 xxx

  4. That Machrie Moor is fascinating and beautiful. Many moons ago, when I was quite young, I used to dream about places like this. And I have yet to visit! All these pictures are wonderful, Cybele! 🙂

    1. thanks so much Mark- no, these are on Machrie Moor on the isle of Arran. There are five sets in all out on the mysterious moor. It takes a half hour to walk from the road. I wrote a bit about them here and more photos – If you have a chance you must visit. It’s probably not that far from you- on the Firth of Clyde. https://cybeleshineblog.wordpress.com/2014/09/28/ancient-hearts/
