Pagan Eye: Purple Light at the Devil's Ring and Finger

Another intriguing photo from Pat of Plant yr Yd Coven - this time a strange purple shaft of light at The Devil's Ring and Finger, near Market Drayton, in Shropshire. The suggestively named Neolithic monument is thought to have once been part of a burial chamber.

Pat said the holed stone and tall rock - in secluded countryside and often hidden from view by the surrounding vegetation - is an "amazing place".

About the photo, he said: "We have been fortunate enough to capture the violet `earth energies` around the time leading to Samhain and past the date."

"It is rare to be able to capture these," he added.

Previous fascinating photos sent to me by Pat include a shaft of light in Bryn Celli Ddu, the Green Witch Festival in Cornwall, and a burning Wicker man

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
