New on 500px : Stonhenge by roliketto by roliketto

Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. It is in the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds. Archaeologists believe it was built anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.

Another photo of the same spot on the way to Muskoka, this time I decided to go with monochromatic post production to really highlight the drama presented by the clouds.

New on 500px : Mountains of Kazbegi by roliketto by roliketto

This is most people’s destination on the Georgian Military Highway: a spectacularly located town just a few kilometres south of the Russian border, with the snowy peak of Mt Kazbek towering to the west, behind the famous hill-top silhouette of Tsminda Sameba Church. Kazbegi is the main town of Khevi, the region north of the Jvari Pass.

Now officially named Stepantsminda, but still known as Kazbegi, this is a sleepy mountain town at about 1750m altitude, with mainly Soviet-era buildings. It’s a favourite with backpackers for its relatively easy access from Tbilisi (with dramatic scenery along the way), its plentiful homestays and the walking in the area.

After driving four hours from Tbilisi (Capital city of Georgia) and then hiking for almost an hour finally I was able to experience this amazing view. The Gergeti Trinity Church, the main cultural landmark of Stepantsminda surrounded by Kazbegi’s mountains.
