Location:
Taken precisely on the Stonehenge primary axis next to the Heelstone at sunset.
Details:
A perfectly clear sky makes for a classic photo of the winter solstice sunset at Stonehenge. Since the declination of the sun doesn't change much for a day or so either side of solstice (hence the name), you've got to take these opportunities when they present themselves.
