Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

It seems as long as humans have been on the earth they have been arranging to suit themselves. Resting in the green fields surrounding the River Boyne in Ireland are many incredible megalithic monuments. Over 5000 years ago men and women arranged the land to create passage tombs and mounds, which survive today for us to wonder about! This image is of some of the satellite tombs around the Great Mound at Knowth.

  3. Wow – great shots. I’ve heard of this but not seen it. Is it grass or moss on top of the mounds – I can’t help thinking how you’d mow it :-) :-) :-)

  4. These are great, I love/miss Ireland. Sardinia reminds me of Ireland at times, and for this weeks arranged challenge I too posted a photo that was arranged some 5000 years ago! Happy Snapping! :)
