Beautiful shimmering reflections and a landscape fit for legends, Roger!

A thought something about the castle looked familiar ... I loved the movie! What is the vessel in front of the castle? A fishing boat? a raft of some sort?

Roger (Grisly) club has replied to Annalia S. club
Lovely comments Annalia, Thank you,
I believe the vessel is used to take visitors to the castle although it is closed like almost everyting else at the moment

Ooh, this is just magical Roger.....................the dramatic sky, the silvery light on the water, the lush green of the landscape and of course that beautiful castle.

Beautifully composed too..............from a super viewpoint! Outstanding..!!

A quote from the movie (feel free to delete it if you want):

“He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the Holy Grail in the Castle of…. Aaaargh!”
Arthur (Graham Chapman): “What?”
Brother Maynard: “The Castle of Aaaargh. He must have died while carving it.”
Bedevere (Terry Jones): “Oh, come on!”
Brother Maynard: “Well, that’s what it says!”
Arthur: “Look, if he was dying, he wouldn’t bother to carve ‘aaargh’, he’d just say it!”
Brother Maynard: “Well, that’s what’s carved in the rock.”
Galahad (Michael Palin): “Perhaps he was dictating!”
Arthur: “Oh, shut up!”
