Autumn Equinox at Loughcrew, September 2005

A crowd begins to gather at Cairn T before the time of sunrise. Dark clouds are an ominous sign . . .

This huge carved stone at the foot of Cairn T is known as the Hag's Chair.

Shadowy figures: Enduring a stiff southerly breeze, enthusiasts examine some of the stones at Loughcrew.

Stones in the grass . . . the remains of a small cairn, Site W, almost forgotten by time.

Yours truly, watching for any sign of a break in the clouds. 5.30am starts don't go down well when the
sun doesn't make an appearance. My thanks to Richard Moore for releasing the shutter!
