Cannon and stone balls

By GeorgePlatis
Two symbols of different eras in artillery means. Stone balls where the missiles of catapults and the cannon of the image above is one of the prime ancestors of modern artillery guns. Both stand in the moat of Rhodes great castle walls demostrating the use of these war means in the glorious past.

An interesting and very well composed image George. Pity about the car in the background, maybe a different point of view who have removed this distraction.
