Walk uphill and just dangle by your fingers from the first cliff you come to. Sounds like sound advice to me. Not that I would ever listen to sound advice.

CJ_ Glad you liked the solution. I remembered it from a book lesson to straighten the perspective of a building and thought you should be able to use it on horizons as well.

Funnily enough we were playing with perspective control on the Photoshop course I did last week and I never thought of applying it to landscape.

Nice shot Chris! I'm not sure if I would be holding on with my fingernails, or chewing them. That looks to be pretty high. I didn't know you had anything that high in that particular area. Hmmmm - good question for a geography test.

The highest point in England is about 3200', the hill I was on is about 2900' and I was someway below the summit. Nothing very high over here, Ben Nevis in Scotland is only 4400'

I was wondering if anybody would pick up on the 'Gurning' It's a contest to find who can pull the ugliest face and I believe held every year, funny folk in these parts !

Do you want an application form for next year ED. I understand entries from distant parts are welcome, I noticed one of the winners was from Whitehaven and thats at least 8 miles away.

chris,

in general, i consider myself an anglophile, but i gotta say: your mugs ain't got nuttin on our mugs.

i recall photos from a similar contest over here where some amiable geezer had managed to get his lower lip right up to the bottom of his nose; i think he was aided in this by general toothlessness. add to that some perpendicular ears and you've really got somethin. no, for high quality gurning, i humbly submit, we win.

Chris,

I'm hoping to be over there next year, in June. You might have to get the contest moved in time to accomodate me.
