Photo of the Week--8/11/08

This was a rare opportunity: a perfect sunny day in England! We took a trip to Cornwall (the southwest corner of England) in August of 1999 and were lucky enough to have beautiful weather on out trip to Tintagel Castle, reputedly the birthplace of King Arthur. There's hardly anything left—a few walls and grass-covered foundations—but the setting is spectacular. Here you can see where the Atlantic is winning, wearing away some of the headland and cutting off the newer parts of the castle from the original. It's gorgeous and glorious in this shot, but maybe not so much on a gray wintry day.

  1. Gorgeous. That's the cliff I want in the screenplay for the Whitman from my post today, okay?

    Now I want to go swimming, darn it.
