Beau Geste?

From 2010 Blog
This sandcastle on the beach reminded me of those old French Foreign Legion films. The story Beau Geste has been made into five films staring the likes of Gary Cooper and Guy Stockwell. Ironically the 1977 parody The Last Remake of Beau Geste staring Marty Feldman was not the last remake as it was followed by the BBC's mini series in 1982. According to Wikipedia, the undisputed authority on all things trivial, the French Foreign Legion has been featured in at least 55 different films. Canon 7D, 1/1600 sec @ f/7.0, ISO 100.
