The edge of the world. Yes, really.
A different perspective of any location can be gained from above.

Here’s the first ever aerial photo of any archaeological site in Britain, taken from a balloon in 1906.

It's a real place.
I've been there twice.
It's in Brittany in the north west of France, near a town called Quiberon.
But it's true that that photo looks like a model. :giggle:

Here's a better one .

There are 2 or three great fields of these standing stones, all in great lines.
 
The ones around (and through) the village of Avebury (as seen in 'Children of the Stones') are a sight to behold. For anyone travelling to see Stonehenge I always say go to Avebury if you really want to be impressed.
