Clouds Between

These photos were taken while I was waiting for the doors to the train to open.  I was standing under the station overhang when I took them.

The photos are grainy and reflective of being taken from a moving car, while I was a passenger.

Sheltering Stone

A Sheltering Stone bw

It is indeed immensely picturesque. I can fancy sitting all a summer’s day watching its shadows shorten and lengthen again, and drawing a delicious contrast between the world’s duration and the feeble span of individual experience. There is something in Stonehenge almost reassuring; and if you are disposed to feel that life is rather a superficial matter, and that we soon get to the bottom of things, the immemorial gray pillars may serve to remind you of the enormous background of time.” -Henry James, 1875
