Hinkelstein collector
Hinkelsteine - Menhirs were set up before the celtic before 2000 B.C. or possibly even earlier by the funnel beakers and were used as markers, as calendar and/or for prayer. During the christianization of the celtic beliefs some of these stones were reshaped or made niches into for cruzifixes or madonna figures, the same way that churches were built at such cult places.
This page contains a collection of more than 1800 pictures of menhirs, cult places and nature wonders in Germany. Only one object is from France.
Nearly all pictures were taken during six bike tours, where the first two were undertaken with a small Suzuki GN125. This performed well, but the Yamaha XJ900 did even better (in fact, it still is still performing). Some Stones I could revisit. You can see the difference of the (older) Kodak photo CD and the bright colors of my Pentax Optio 430RS. Later experience using the Panasonic video camera was frustrating. Now much better images come from my new Sony NEX6, luckily.
