Did didn't it, I got some of distant Bryn Cader Faner too but a bit too blurry and small. postman Posted by postman

The feel of the place is one of quiet calm, away from it all. Luckily though it's not too much of a hike to get to. thelonious Posted by thelonious

I think I let out an audible 'wow' when I first got there :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

What is this 'art' and 'non-scientific' of which you speak? Can you prove it? ; ) spencer Posted by spencer

Feels good to talk to planet earth whilst we're out and about, the stars as well. Trees, rocks, standing stones, anything really. All connected. I like to think they listen. Maybe even reply, in their own way sometimes. Thanks for the comments. Keep chatting to the fonts :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

I like this stone. Up close the markings make their own mini landscape. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Polka dots and moonbeams, I like the sound of that :-) thelonious Posted by thelonious

Mind those moonbeams, then. And don't be mean to the lichens please :) Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Great grainy detail shot, shows the skill and effort put in by the artist. ryaner Posted by ryaner

That's looking nicely lichen free. ight have to go have a wander about there after dark and try some fancy side lighting. Top quality rock art, often overlooked due to it' superb ability to hide from those seeking it ;)

I like Hob's photo a lot. And I like the way you say 'I think it was pleased to see us', as my sister and I express the same crazy thoughts on our trips out to see stone fonts. And Spencer, the carvings won't be understood any better by measuring them to the millimetre, they're art so needs some non-scientific fancifulness :) You better find out when the next full moon is and get out there to have a look.

It looked a little lonely when we first arrived. I think it was pleased to see us, even if it had to put up with my constant babbling (the soundtrack to most of our walks).

I think we saw more cup and ring marked stones over the week we were here than I have seen in my lifetime. The overall feeling I got from them was one of movement. It was hard not to keep thinking about water and rain. I love the photo from Chatton by Hob of the raindrops next to the cup and rings. It's as good a connection as any :-)

I do wonder if some cupmarks were meant to be filled with water, with the full moon's reflection shimmering in them. Fanciful, emotional, non scientific me.. spencer Posted by spencer

What a marvellous spot. You can't be lonesome when you find something like that, someone got there before you! To me they look like permanent raindrop ripples in the puddle. Or is it something about the air or the sun. It looks so elemental. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

It looks brilliant, a wide-spaced ring. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

When the heather grows back, I can see this circle disappearing from view. The stones are so small. The number used and the size of the circle felt just right for them though. thelonious Posted by thelonious

Yep, if you go that way it's definitely worth combining with other sites in the area too. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Thank you, it's a lovely setting, the slight elevation makes it really. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
