"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
Clever. I like it Gwil.But I am intrigued by the "building" in the photograph. I cannot make my mind up about the scale of it and wonder what on earth it can be. Please enlighten me.
Thanks Pat. As it is close to the old 'iron curtain' border I suspect it may have had some kind of military use at one time. Perhaps a tunnel of some kind.
true enough Gwilymjohn
And the chimney may well contain a spy camera then? Thanks for the info Gwil.
Pat, or maybe for ventilation- the ground is lower than the field behind so 'the lid' may have in the past been covered with earth. Or maybe there's another simpler explanation. If I ever get to go that way again I'll seek out the farmer and try to get the information for you, or even a look inside. It is only a stone's throw from where the picture of the crucifixion (a few posts below) was taken - where a young Russian conscript, the scent of victory in his nostrils, fired his rifle .
Jon, many thanks!
ps Pat - but looking at the target I think he deliberately missed it.
