Hi all

Aviation related in a way as shot was taken from a Loganair Islander last Friday.

This shot shows Muckle Flugga Lighthouse. This is the most northerly piece of land in the British Isles. Flew down pretty close and got many shots that day......infact over 350!

Hope you like the image from my beautiful homeland.

Cheers

No scenery in the South of England..........

Wash your mouth out with soap Mr.Watt !

Let me take you on a cultural tour..........

For a start you have some wonderful places in London, like Hackney, Bermondsey and the Isle of Dogs. Gaze wonderfully at the super Canary Wharf, and do not forget to sample the experience of being robbed at knifepoint..........simply unforgettable.
Sample the Underground of London......Remember you will need plenty of cash, a can of deaoderant and nerves of steel.
Do not commit the cardinal sin of making eye contact with anybody.
Try to pick a day when it is not raining, and there is no strike taking place......although this may prove difficult.
How about spending a day on the M25.......feel the wonder as you travel 5 miles on the World's most amazing road. Note please allow up to 7 hours for this excursion.

Moving down the coast, sun yourself in glorious Bognor Regis.
A treasured holiday awaits.

Feel what it is like to live in a Tropical Rain zone with a day visit to Bristol.
Note: Temperatures in Bristol may not reach tropical levels.

For the very adventurous make a northbound turn and spend a day at the Bullring in Birmingham. Extra life insurance is advisable.

Or how about Mosside in Manchester. Note you will need to perform a currency change from £ Sterling into Crack cocaine. This can be achieved at numerous places.

But surely for ultimate luxury, you simply have to book a two week stay in Cleethorpes. Simply breathtaking, and you must ensure to arrange your stay during the rainy spell to see the town in its full glory. The best months to try this are between January and December.

So you see the saaaaaaaf has much to offer..........I really don't know why you insist on staying up there  Smile

Lovely shot by the way.

Cheers

Garry

Gary - are you suggesting there is anything worth of note North of London? My mental map of England is described in 2 sentences:

London.
Flock of Sheep.

That sums it up...
 Big grin

EGGD: Mmmmh. Maybe I should add a third sentence?

London.
Flock of Sheep.
Cheese.

(Did you know that the UK now produces more distinct types of cheese than France?)

Or should the third sentence read "Crazy men wearing skirts"?

 Acting devilish
