EDITORS COMMENTS
This print by James O. Davies transports us to the mystical realm of Stonehenge during the Summer Solstice. As darkness blankets the ancient landscape, a vibrant atmosphere emerges, illuminated by floodlights that cast an ethereal glow upon the towering stones. The scene is set just before dawn, capturing a moment of anticipation and excitement as crowds gather in this sacred place. The neolithic wonder of Stonehenge stands proudly amidst its Bronze Age surroundings, a testament to human ingenuity and spiritual connection with nature. This prehistoric stone circle holds profound significance as a World Heritage Site, drawing people from all corners of the globe who seek to witness its enigmatic power. In this photograph, we are immersed in an otherworldly ambiance where time seems suspended. The night sky takes on shades of purple, adding an air of mysticism to the already enchanting setting. Silhouettes of individuals dotting the landscape remind us that we are not alone in our fascination with this ancient marvel; rather, we are partaking in a collective experience that transcends generations. James O. Davies has masterfully captured both the grandeur and intimacy inherent within Stonehenge's Summer Solstice celebration through his lens. This image invites us to contemplate our place within history and ponder upon humanity's enduring quest for meaning and connection with our ancestors' legacy etched into these weathered stones.
