This is one of the places we visited during our little weekend trip. Here is something about the dolmen: Poulnabrone dolmen.

Canon PowerShot SX30 IS 1/320 second F/8.0 ISO 200 5 mm

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Please read this.

Excellent, very good idea to use black and white for this dolmen. The photo is beautiful with a nice composition. Great shot.

@gerard1948: Thank you. I thought it looks better black and white than with colours.

Jypyä Pop from Turku, Finland

Did you see the trolls and other mystical dolmen near?

@Jypyä Pop: No, I just saw one little Finnish pig close to the dolmen. :)

@Christine: Thank you!

Oiva from Turku, Finland

A stunning picture, these structures are amazing! How in the world they are sometimes erected? I guess the question is never anyone able to explain!:-))Haleja.

Good day for both of you!

@Oiva: Maybe it was built when there still were giants living on earth - they would have easily lifted those stones... :)

Have a great day!

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Nice in b&w, amazing what could be achieved all those years ago when a few minds worked together to create these memories to the dead.

@Curly: Sometimes I just wish it would be possible to go back in time just to see how they made all these things...

CElliottUK from Reading, United Kingdom

'Mazing to think that they could quarry the stone, cut it, drag it and erect it all those years ago. The family who did this must have been incredibly rich and powerful

@CElliottUK: It is really amazing that they could do all that back then...

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

How on earth did they get that up there? We need a crane.
Looks like a seat for a giant from this angle.

@The Mouse: I really would like to travel back in time to see how they did it!
Maybe it was a seat for a giant...
