Photographer's Note

A picture that does convey in a limited way the breath taking view that one has from Tintagel's castle (Cornwall).
According to one legend the infant Arthur was thrown by the waves on the beach by Merlin's cave. King Arthur's time in history was in the fifth century.
It is always difficult to prove if Arthur did exist but certainly there was a great warrior in the West of England who had some kind of fortress where Tintagel castle (King’s Arthur castle) is today. The original fortress has gone but archaeologists have found proof in their diggings on the Tintagel Castle, that fifth century citizens lived on the site. The replacement Castle was built between 1230-1236 and is now nearly 800 years old. Within two hundred years the Castle was in ruins and remains so to this day. Earl Richard of Cornwall paid for the construction of the Castle and it is owned by the Duke of Cornwall.
