    Sorry Rosie. King Canute (or Knut as he was spelled at the time, as he was a Dane who ruled over England), did not try to stop the tide coming in. On the contrary, he was demonstrating to his fawning and flattering courtiers that not even a king as powerful as they reckoned he was could hold back the sea, which is what they were telling him in an attempt to curry his favour.
    But yes, it is a fantastic photograph.

    How funny that my little photo should end up in a history lesson! I better go and read up on Mr Knut!

    Yet another superb Sunday. You do take fantastic photos. And I love your modesty too. Did you star on a box brownie?

    I don't think I have every seen such a beautiful photo before. Reminds me of Louis Armstrong song "And I think to myself what a Wonderful World" Love the colours.

    King Canute?

  • Guest
    Phoebe Sunday, 01 December 2013

    This photo makes you think of King Canute? Why, pray tell Rosie? Am I missing something?

    Because King Canute sat on the beach and tried to stop the waves encroaching - it was the first thing that jumped into my mind when I saw the person sitting with arms held aloft as though yelling at the sea to stand still for them. It would seem I was the only one to see the picture in this light though!

    I'm afraid that historical reference went way above my head! It's my little son sitting there on an abondoned chair and I love that detail but I don't know about King Canute. Thanks for raising the intellectual level though!!! :o

  • Guest
    Rosie @Eco-Gites of Lenault Monday, 02 December 2013

    It's a lovely picture and I think serves well to show how Silent Sunday pictures can mean different things to different people. If you have 5 minutes spare Wiki gives some information on Canute ;)
