How do you make prehistoric megaliths look even more ominous? Wait for menacing clouds to loom over and capture the scene in black and white. It worked for Times reader "photomarc," who shot this moody photo of England's Stonehenge. "[On] our last trip to England, my wife and I were caught in some nasty weather," says the photographer. "I did take this shot before hurrying back to the car!"

The mysterious ruins were built approximately 5,000 years ago about eight miles north of Salisbury, England. Stonehenge, Avebury and associated sites were inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritages site in 1986. The Times recently featured the monuments of Avebury, England, as one of Europe's top underrated destinations.
