Summer Solstice Portraits 2018
Every Year thousands of people travel across the globe to the Ancient Stone Circle of Stonehenge, in Wiltshire, UK, to celebrate Summer Solstice and the Dawn of the Longest Day of the Year on 21st June.
Summer Solstice is a date of spiritual significance for many ancient cultures across the world and known as a time for peace and celebration. Photographed against the symbolic Heel Stone, critical in the Summer Solstice, as it marks the point on the horizon where the sun rises on Summer Solstice, thus acting as a calendar. It is also thought to represent the fertilisation of Mother Earth by the Sky Father at the height of power on the longest day of the year, by the shadow it casts reaching the Ancient Stone Circle 250 feet away on Solstice.
