About to do stuff in a Barrow, heh?
Chris: This was taken on the top of Glastonbury Tor Ray, they are Druids

Are they about to sacrifice a virgin or something? The chap with the Umbro rucksack doesn't appear to be taking things too seriously. He'll be next if he's not careful.
Chris: I think he is seeing the funny side of trying to find a virgin in that part of the world.
it is a great image Chris... but the medicine man doesn't look like he's one of our First Nations People...
i love the backgroundsmile
Chris: They are all Druids Peter, a different tribe..

They are either very serious, or a bit unhappy at what they are watching
Chris: They are watching me Lisl, so that explains it. Taken on the top of Glastonbury Tor during the annual Druid get together
My guess would be something like the Spring or Vernal Equinox at Glastonbury, Chris, except it seems a bit too light for that?
Chris: It is their annual summer gathering Ginnie
Man Utd supporters are really getting desperate
Chris: Desperate to become Druids eh! Have you considered increasing the daily dosage of your medication?

I hope they didn't, as hardworking British workers, skive off work to do this.
Chris: Members of the proletariat deserve at least one day off annually Comrade

Before I read your replies - I knew we are on the top of Glastonbury Tor among the Druids or any esoteric group during their morning prayer to the SUN- everybody looks different and nobody is elder than fifty years. Only one boy is a tourist. I would be interested to see how yourself were dressed up- in a white, vestal, long gown? Surely not in the gentleman look as I do show you today?
Chris: I was dressed as I normally present myself Philine, you won't catch me wearing fancy dress!

I suspect that this is someone's birthday and they wanted a fancy dress party Tiff.
Chris: Have they not heard the phrase "play up and play the game" Chad!
Looks like a meeting of the Labour Party at Manchester.
Chris: Hahaha - brilliant!
A very glum bunch, Chris.
Chris: It's no fun being a Druid perhaps..
I like your nice tight crop here, Chris.
Chris: Thank you kindly Mary
interesting shot. i see that people wearing shades are immediately delegated to the sidelines.
Chris: And so they should be..
There doesn't seem to be any common mode of dress among this lot, either male or female, sort of 'come as you are'
Chris: They are a bit like that Brian
How was the sacrifice or did they finished with a gentle orgy!
Chris: I didn't stay long enough to find out!

Lovely day and views for their gathering
Chris: If you've never ascended Glastonbury Tor you must do so for the wonderful views one day Anne

A serious bunch, except for the tourist. The guy with the leather pouches seems to have lined up his followers.
Chris: Yes - I thought it was the second coming at first!
Druids, eh? I thought that all the druids were male??
Chris: No longer Tom

Gosh - what have you been up to, Chris?!
Chris: This is the annual Druids' convention in Glastonbury Penny. I have picked some of the more conventional ones to illustrate..
