Stone Circles

Stone Circles

Well, a semicircle. You should be able to follow the line of it by starting at the rocky outcrop in the foreground and following the line with your eye, anticlockwise to the left edge of the shot. But what is it? No, it was not left by ancient civilisations or extra-terrestrials! These circles remain in various rural locations in Tenerife, some of which are still used for La Trilla - threshing wheat. You spread your wheat out inside the circle, then get your horse to run round over it, like this.

See where this picture was taken. [?]
