Black & White Sunday: The Giant of St Michael’s Mount

I posted this pic in colour, a while ago, but thought I’d do a B&W for Paula’s Sunday Challenge. The Giant’s face is a lichen-covered rock formation at St. Michael’s Mount in Cornwall. Cormoran , the mythical giant of Cornish folk-lore is said to have once lived on the Mount, wading ashore at night, to steal cows and sheep from the villagers’ fields. He also appears in the English fairytale, “Jack the Giant Killer” and was the first giant to be slain by the hero, Jack.

  1. I’ve been there a couple of times, and even posted about it a while back. But I’d never heard of this. It just goes to show that there’s always new things to discover! πŸ™‚

  2. certe immagini della natura lasciano stupefatti e affascinati…non ho visto la foto a colori, ma la resa di questa credo sia insuperabile, sono stata curiosa anche della storia
    buonanotte cara
