    Come on, you can do better than that!

    Unfortunately not, but who knows what the future holds?

    They're two shots of the same valley in two parallel universes. One is the inverse of the other.

    Last time I saw that view there was a huge pall of smoke hanging in the valley coming from masses of fires and barbecues on a certain very noisy & crowded campsite

    well its not Scotland or the Lakes, neither is it anywhere else in England for that matter

    If you can possibly believe it, I spent once spent new year bivying very close to the spot that BG took this photo from.

    At last, somebody with knowledge! Hiya, Hamish.

    To be fair, I didn't take this photo. I'll reveal the source when somebody posts the correct location.

    Photo taken from about grid ref: SH 6580 5415 (Snowdonia) looking down towards Llyn Gwynant, even some people in the Roman Army may have been to this spot, unless they were too scared to leave their camp a mile up the road behind the photographer.

  7. BG! says:

    Yup, that's the place.

    FYI, the pic was copied from the free BBC/OU Open2.net Nature of Britain 2008 calendar, available at http://www.open2.net/breathingplaces/calorder.html - curiously, there's no location information on either the paper or the .pdf versions. The M-I-L has been trying to find out where the pic was taken from for some time. I'll suppose I'll tell her... soon... maybe...
