The ring of standing stones is believed to date back as far as 3000BC. Each stone is said to weigh approximately 25tons. The landmark and its surroundings are a protected world heritage site and is currently managed by English Heritage and the National Trust.
Unfortunately the sun wasn't on my side for this shot and the most beautiful sunset appeared behind me. So I will 100% be back in the future. #mycanon
Star trails looking North on a dirt road just off the I-17. Airplanes kept trying to ruin my shot but I was able to get around it by taking 10s exposures and blacking out their trails. Stars don't move much in 10s, and using the "lighten" blend mode gives nice results with no real holes between stars.
Star trail version of that last shot from Marcahuasi - this is a composite of 135 x 0:25 exposures, taken over the course of about an hour. I started the timelapse and went to sleep - just letting the battery run out - and was glad to see that the camera hadn't moved when I awoke. Not like there was another living soul up there on the plateau with me to move it, but...you know...ghosts...😂 #peru#marcahuasi#markawasi#startrails#allthestars#neverstopexploring#liveyourdream#llama
