A different type of photo taken at Avebury. Most photos are of the stones in the stone circles. However, the village is quite pretty and there are a lot of photo opportunities to be had other than of the stones in the circles.
We had just parked the car and had walked in the rain along a track from the carpark to this village street when these bikers came past us. The green high visibility vests that they are wearing seem to be the most common colour vest worn by bikers in England. One of the bikers had Kawasaki insignias on his clothing. All of the bikes were green which might be an indication that they were all riding Kawasakis.
Avebury is a Neolithic henge monument containing three stone circles, around the village of Avebury in Wiltshire, in southwest England. Unique amongst megalithic monuments, Avebury contains the largest stone circle in Europe, and is one of the best known prehistoric sites in Britain. It is both a tourist attraction and a place of religious importance to contemporary Pagans.

An excellent point of view to show us this very attractive village street with the added bonus of the line of motorcyclists who help create a fine sense of depth. I like the lighting and punchy colours. Also, the detail to be observed in te brickwork.

You are right, there is so much to enjoy at Avebury.
Despite the overcast sky, the colours have recorded well.
Your viewpoint uses the road to guide us straight into the scene where the cyclists create a most unexpected line ... fantastic sense of perspective!
The details of the wild and garden flowers, reveal the ambience of this pretty village.
Have a great w/e,

Du ger oss den ena fina bilden efter den andra. Du lyckas alltid återskapa väldigt bra färger och dina foton är alltid mycket välexponerade. Den långa raden av motorcyklister ger bilden ett fantstiskt fint djup och deras gröna västar passar ju otroligt fint in i den lummiga miljön. Detta är en klart annorlunda komposition från en by som den här.

It is a wonderful shot with nice colors and a very good pov. Despite the unfavourable weather and difficult light condition, you have extracted superb clarity and depth.
Very well done. Tfs.

ottimi sia i soggetti che la composizione per il particolare interesse che la scena ripresa offre.
A fascino della foto contribuiscono in buona misura anche i solori.
Un ottimo lavoro merito anche della perfetta gestione della luce e il perfetto uso dei parametri tecnici.
Ciao e buona serata

that is definitely different approach to document the area I must say I enjoy it very much. Apart from the familiarity of every day life it is very good quality photo with excellent colors and good composition. The road not only leads an eye towards the second plan but also create some depth.
Thanks for sharing
