Obviously carved into fissured rock on the side of a mountain, with a cross carved next to the steps. Photo found at Pixdaus without further identification or credit re source, and with tags indicating "Anglo-Saxon" and "england," which surprises me a little. It looks more like something that might have been created in central Europe or perhaps a monastery in the Greece/Adriatic area. Does anyone recognize it? (Click to enlarge)
Addendum - identified by Anonymous as follows "Stony stairway from the 13th century. The stairway is part of a rock castle in the mountains “Elbsandsteingebirge” in Sachsen, Germany." Continuing a string of my never being able to ask a question here that someone didn't have the answer to. Amazing. Thanks.

It's beautiful, but it makes me tired to look at it--thinking both of climbing up it, and of the work needed to hew it out of the rock in the first place.ReplyDelete
Where's the cross, BTW? I don't see one.
Swift - click the picture to get a larger version and then look to the right of where the second set of steps begins...ReplyDelete
well, anonymous beat me to the punch...ReplyDelete
It's a reverse image search engine.
Not 100% reliable, but I have identified many photos with it.
I'd bet dollars to pumpkin seeds that anon. used it, or something like it.
he he he... Yup, you caught me. That's exactly what I used. I was surprised you hadn't used it yourself, because I remember you mentioning tineye a while back.ReplyDelete
err... by "you" I meant minnesotastanReplyDelete
I should have used TinEye - I 've used it before. As John says, it's hit and miss re finding something. For this post I was just hurrying and wasn't thorough.ReplyDelete
