A Photographic Journey Through England - Stonehenge

It feels as though there isn't a day that goes by when I don't think of England. This morning when I woke up, I realized that I haven't really posted any photos from my trip there back in 2014 (which honestly feels like a decade ago). So being the person I am, I figured it was about time that I shared them with all of you. To start off my England Series, I thought it would be fun to begin with Stonehenge.

Stonehenge is located in Wiltshire, England - which is situated on the Salisbury Plains - south of London. Stonehenge was built around 3,000 BCE. This site was home to 150 or more cremation burials up until 2300 B.C.E. What's really awesome about Stonehenge is that the sarsen stones (which each weigh about 25 tons!!) were brought from Malborough Downs, which is a whopping 20 miles north. Even if you don't know the history behind this place, the inexplicable feeling abounds. There was something magical about being amongst those giant stones. You could feel a strong vibe coming from the ground - the air was filled with it. It was truly everything I imagined it would be too. The sense of feeling so miniscule in comparison to those stones and the history behind them was quite overwhelming and perfect at the same time.









Don't mind my cheesy smile and windswept hair - I was really excited to be there.

  1. I would have wanted to touch them and that is why there is a fence, I'm sure. Great photos, Danielle!
