0172 for me - super shot with the snowy/frosty trees in the background.

Excellent as usual Nigel. Ultra crisp and clear - I just feel a bit cold looking through them - still better than heat haze ?
Know what you mean about the tyre - got the tee-shirt on that one. I'm convinced tyre fitters spread a few of them about when things are slack
(only joking to any tyre fitters :lol: )
Thanks again for posting

Many thanks for the comments
There's loads of good places see this site! I rarely stay in one place all day, the best place for topsides is at the "base leg turn" out in the forest, its a bit of a hike to here 52.422706,0.603383

Hi Jacky, They won't have flown today as it was Martin Luther King day, a public holiday, and it looks like it'll be foggy there tomorrow, that's what stopped flying for 3 days last week!

Nice crisp lightning on these, looks a tad cold though. Tough luck with the tyre, this hobby is expensive enough without having things like that happen.
