|Description ||The entrance to Hell ? |
or is it just the wonderful carved Tiemblais menhir, St-Samson-sur-Rance, just a few kilometres off the ferry at St Malo?
This was about 1:30pm, late March 2008, in a hazy sun, and some of the carvings on the front face can be seen. An hour or two earlier would have been better, as would a stronger sun. Can't have everything.
But after a while, you "get your eye in" and more and more wonderful carvings come into view. I can see on here (with the eye of the knowing, and the full def picture) the animal (mid left, just above the quartz vein) and a couple of crosses and other bits and pieces.
My Dad lends himself for scaling purposes.
