Poulnabrone dolmen is a 5,000 year old portal tomb in the limestone Burren area of County Clare, Ireland, photographed in April 2007.
The dolmen consists of a massive flat capstone supported on several upright pillars, and would originally have been covered by a mound of earth. Archeological excavations found several traces of human remains at the burial site, which now stands as a stark reminder of an ancient celtic civilisation. Looking back through the mists of time, who knows what ancient religious rites took place at this barren and windswept scene?
A low camera angle was used to capture the power and strength of the stones, and some digital alterations added drama to the color tones and composition.
