Photo of the Week

 This week for Photo of the Week, we would like to feature a breath-taking photo of the Milky Way taken in the french countryside. Taken by the talented photographer Jonathan Laruelle at the Maurice Barres monument à la Colline de Sion (at Sion Hill), a key feature of this photo is the strange stone structure pointing up into the heavens (and that to some of you may resemble a rocket ). It is in fact an old lantern of the dead, a monument used to accompany the dead into the beyond. Standing at 22 metres high, this ancient stone structure is a perfect monument to past ancestors looking upwards towards the heavens.
