On s'attend à voir rôder korrigans et farfadets...J'adore les standing stones , je crois deviner au loin un cercle de pierres levées. Ta photo me rappelle certains lieux des îles écossaises que j'ai parcourues à vélo, il y a bien longtemps mis qui restent imprimées dans ma mémoire ..et sur mes vieilles diapos...
MERCI, Nigel
