Yup! Greenland it is. The bit of aeroplane is actually the leading edge of a fan jet. Greenland is usually obscured by cloud, so I was fortunate to get the shot.I took the pic before the days of digital cameras, perhaps 15 years ago. I wonder if there is a lot less ice there now?
I retract that...too isolated !
The fact that we have snow and non snow photos ......can we assume ewe took these photos Mat ?
After a little research, I tentatively suggest that the hill, sorry, mountain in the background is Wether Fell, near Wensleydale.The reason that it is featured might be because a "mountain" in Great Britain is strictly defined by a height of 2000 ft. Wether fell is close to 2000 ft high, and perhaps it might be considered the smallest mountain or the largest hill in England?My apologies, neil, if the name gives you nightmares!
edit - Although I have just looked it up and there was a cow farm established just around the corner from my photo in the 13th century! That's enough of a clue for now
Would this be Pendle Hill? It is associated with witch-trials. I seemed to recall something between a hill and some witch hunts back in the 17th century, and looked it up.Seems the name Pendle Hill is also a tautology, as the word Pendle is derived from Penhul. 'Pen' is apparently Cumbric for hill, whilst 'hul' is also meant hill in Old English. 'Hill' was later added again. It means HillHill Hill. That's pretty cool!
and here is the link for Neil of some cool looking sheep on Pendle Hill - sorry cannot embed the photo as it is protectedhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/felixspencer2/4392311997/lightbox/
