Stony Littleton Long Barrow

The 5,000-year-old Stony Littleton chambered long barrow faces South East. This means that it is illuminated by the sunrise of the Winter Solstice period, with the sunset of the Summer Solstice period setting exactly behind the entrance. I visit the site during these periods for the purposes of the sun photography. Some of my favourite images are shown below.
