Click and drag your mouse
in the picture to scroll around the circle of Castlerigg. This panorama
was taken sometime between 8-9am in mid April 2003 and the colour
of the stones changes with the position of the sun. In the mornings
the stones have a cool grey hue but as the sun moves round towards
the west the evening sunlight transforms them into a rich golden brown
(compass arrow indicates north).
