Scottish stone circles feature in exhibition
Ancient stone monuments around the Aberdeenshire countryside (Scotland) are the focus of a new photography exhibition. Dramatic black and white images depicting some of the region's stone circles have gone on display at Westhill (Aberdeenshire). Stone circles at Easter Aquorthies, Loanhead of Daviot near Inverurie and Tomnaverie near Aboyne feature in the show at Max's Cafe on Ashdale Drive.
Westhill photographer Heather Maslen says her images are part of an ongoing project to record the region's historic stone monuments. "I like the mystery and the beauty of them," she said. "There is a fascination about them because we do not know exactly why they were put there. They are just such a part of this area. It's a way of exploring the countryside. I am trying to find some off the beaten track that not everyone sees. I've been doing it for 18 months already but I've got so much more to do."
The exhibition runs until November 5. Visitors to the exhibitions will get the chance to meet the two women at Max's Cafe on November 19 from 6.30pm-9.30pm. To book a place, call Jennifer Stewart at the cafe on 01224 744877. A series of Mrs Maslen's images can be seen on the web at http://www.heathermaslenphotography.com/gallery_156115.html
