Ballykeel dolmen, just over 7 km south west of the village of Camlough in South Armagh, stands at one end of the remains of its cairn rubble in a small enclosure. The notched capstone (the only one to have been replaced on a dolmen) barely rests on the uprights. The 'chamber' is about 1.5m wide x 3m long and faces south east.
I worked on this a good bit in Photoshop, dodging , burning etc.

Gary - great, moody shot. I really like the way the light highlights the stones in the background and the stone in the forground gives the shot some real "weight". Excellent work. Paul.
