This was my first Solstice and it could not have been more perfect. The weather was absolutely fantastic, a bit chilly, but above all, seeing the sun from the moment it climbed above the horizon was breathtaking.

The atmosphere was magical, especially on entering the stones shortly after the sunrise, and to hear all the cheers and horns to celebrate the solstice was just something else. A lot of people left shortly after 5am, but a large group did start gathering in the stone circle at around 6am for music and dancing. The sound of drums, violin, saxophone and horns all in unison was amazing and this continued until around 9am. I must have had goosebumps from my arrival at 3am, to the moment I left at 9.15am.

With so many people from all walks of life all gathered around these ancient monoliths, you could definitely 'feel' something while you were there..... It was an unforgettable experience that I don't think can be repeated, but I will definitely be returning next year.
I have attached some photo's that I would very much like to share.

See you all next year! Faron Scott ( Melksham, Wiltshire)
