June 2021 Picture of the Month

Not having ventured out with my camera in the wind and the gales which we experienced during most of May, June's picture comes from my image library – a mediaeval jousting event photographed at Framlingham Castle, the magnificent 12th century fortress in Suffolk, about six years ago. The trip was initially planned to get some pictures at Fakenham Gasworks for a Vintage Spirit article, but was extended into an enjoyable extra few days exloring Norfolk and Suffolk from our base at the excellent Sculthorpe Mill Hotel just outside Fakenham. The picture makes it look as though the red knight was bound to win, having a much longer sword, but as far as I can recall, both swords were equally long and lethal. Oh, and the red knight did win!
