Ponthus’ Beech, originally uploaded by Christophe Kiciak.

The Paimpont forest, sometimes said to be the Arthurian Brocéliande, is near the city of Rennes in Brittany, France. The setting of a number of adventures in Arthurian legend, it claims to hold the tomb of Merlin, the Fountain of Youth, and Hotié de Vivianne (castle of the Lady of the Lake). (so says Wikipedia).

This gorgeous photo purports to be of Ponthus’ Beech … a knight of the round table whose castle was destroyed in a storm (after he blasphemed) and the tree grew on the ruins.

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
