Absolutely amazing.
Lisl: This is part of quite a large stone circle in Cornwall, Michael

these stones are amazing

nice capture
Lisl: They are - part of one of the prehistoric stone circles in this country, thank you
Nice point of view to show off these incredible stones!
Lisl: I took so many pictures from different angles, and didn't know which one to show, thank you, Elizabeth

Des menhirs comme en Bretagne.
Lisl: Yes - similar culture
I always just stare when I see these places, Lisl.
Lisl: And yes - you certainly stared at this one - I remember it well

Lisl: Yes - the energies here are very strong

I saw those menhirs in Avebury, in the Bretagne and in Ireland. Wherfe we are here? I have often the feeling to see characters of men.
Lisl: These are in Cornwall, Philine - on Bodmin Moor

That to me is still mind blowing how that is possible that the stones are still standing straight. What a wonderful picture, Lisl.
Lisl: Thank you, Astrid - yes they look good and upright still

I would not be hurling those very far. Is that an engine house in the distance from some former mining activity?
Lisl: Yes, you are right, Alan - from a tin mine
Naturally, in Breton good one, I like menhirs and I always have pleasure to discover those whom I do not know. Very beautiful framing
Lisl: It is a site worth visiting, Marie, if you ever get to Cornwall, thank you

Is that a disused tin mine building in the distance Lisl?
Lisl: Yes, it is, Chad

For a moment I thought Avebury ... but then realised this was a very remote location.
Lisl: Very remote - deepest Cornwall

Ole Obelix managed to hurl them into a row smile Mystery stones I call them. Many theories, but no proof.
Lisl: Although it doesn't look like it, these are part of a big stone circle, Louis
I didn't know there was such places in Cornwall.
Lisl: Yes - there are many Ancient Monuments in Cornwall, mainly inland
Wonderful how the closest one is balanced on stone.
Lisl: Yes - strange
I'm surprised that this site is not roped off, Lisl. Are they protected from vandalism?
Lisl: I have only known of one act of vandalism against a stone circle - that was when some vandal daubed them with painted symbols

i don't think i can budge them, Lisl smile
Lisl: Have to get built up then, Ayush!
I bet they didn't hurl them far Lisl
Lisl: But if you were the Devil, you might be able to!

These have a similar quality to the stones at Callanish on the Isle of Lewis, many miles away. Very special.
Lisl: That's interesting, Penny. I have visited many stone circles, and would love to see the one at Callanish
