Back in the Abbey ruins we look towards the supposed grave of King Arthur buried just beyond the two broken walls. And there was me thinking he was a fictional character :)
Back in the 11th Century the monks knew how to whip up a bit of interest in getting funds for the Abbey! Discover Arthur's bones. Scamming money out of people isn't new.
BTW, I've got some really good quantum energised eco-positronic analubic snake oil. Only £22 a 5ml bottle, limited stocks. How many do you want?

@CElliottUK: perhaps you should team up with someone in the perfume business. You've got the price right :)

This is beautiful with the repeated openings ... and what looks like a manor house beyond.

Excellent composition! Love the repeating lines.

A fine use of this arch to show us the broken walls. King Arthur has been so widely used and misused that it's no wonder we think of him as fictitious character. Nice post.

Really nicely done composition Grouser. I love how we're looking through the arches (I'm assuming the midground structure used to be a complete arch) straight toward the structure in the background. Pretty interesting about the King Arthur bit. You think that's really his grave or just something conjured up over the years?

@Jason Politte: There are definitely bones buried there, but there is so much fiction surrounding Arthur that it is difficult to know where the truth lies. I suspect like many things of this nature, it's a myth to pull tourists in.
