    okay so yeah, this is about as "Dark" as I get but i thought i would contribute to the new gallery. This kind of creeped my out like Blair Witch style when i came across it in the middle of the woods... i mean, who does this...??? I was hoping for a darker tone in these images, but i just couldn't capture the mood i was going for... just harsh mid-day light i think...

    4. okay this has some kind of weird Salem-Witch-Trial, freaky-cult worship thing going on... it's totally in the middle of nowhere, like a mile off the nearest trail, all the rocks cleared out, a stone pillar stacked taller than me in a circle about 8 feet across... :confused:

    (if anybody knows why people do this, i'd love to know)

    These are called 'cairns' They're a Scotish tradition, generally they're as a memorial for an event or a person but sometimes they're used to mark a path. More recently you'll find random groups of them, like you have, as people have seen one and decided to make another. Have a look here for more complete info...

    ps. Love the photos, last one is outstanding!

    Love these, very dark. Think they look quite eeire even without the info, but its always best to know where they were.... adds more to the feel of them. Certainly is a strange thing to come accross and you've captured them well here, nice work :thumbup:

    Nice... I do like the b&w better - gives it a slightly creepier effect. Nice shots! Very blair-witchy!

    this is worth a bunch of reps... great shots...

    funny that most people automatically think witch....

    most witches ( i would think....wouldnt know for sure...) would not attract that much attention to themselves...besides, nothing to it if you know the right spell... the rocks move themselves....( not that i would know...!!)
