Balquhain - Rock Art - Eastern Flanker

The rock art on this stone is aligned to the major moonset (5).

The cup marks on the fallen western flanker, west is left.
There are three prominent cup marks that are easily visible, but a fourth is ringed lower left. This photo illustrates
just how effective lichen growth can be at hiding rock art, the fourth cup is a t least as deep and defined as the
other three. It is worth comparing this photo with Ritchie's lichen-free version below.


Ritchie's photo (6) of the flanker cups.
With much less lichen coverage, the fourth cup, virtually invisible in our photo, stands out well.
