Frozen in Time – a Kilkenny standing stone

I came across this standing stone while out walking through some fields at the top of one of county kilkenny’s many hills, the Moon was sitting right above it and I felt it was a very appropriate moment.

Ireland has so many of these stones and few are protected, many thousands must have been removed over time and the ones left only survive because the land owners care enough to keep them. It is thought that most date back some four to six thousand years so can you imagine just how many times the moon has passed over this standing stone marking the passage of each day.

Standing looking at this view however time felt frozen !!!!

  2. Hi Nigel, Happy New Year – wonderful to see your photographs again. If the stone could talk, don’t you wonder what tales it would reveal.

  3. A great moment. I wonder how many folk over the centuries have stood there and watched the moon wander across the top of that very stone?
