The Ring of Brodgar is a large circle set on a narrow strip between 2 lochs. They are at least 4 thousand years old. 36 stones remain with 21, each about 4.5 metres high, being upright. It is quite a sight but photography gets a little tricky if even one small tour group is wandering about.
I processed the image using Photoshop Touch on my tablet which makes it had to get a good balance between sky and foreground.

This is a fine shot of this interesting landmark. Your composition is nice placing the stone to one side and including the flowers on the other. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.

I do like the bright saturated colours and the positioning of the standing stones in the picture.
The heather in bloom is a nice attraction.
