Oxenhope... the extreme horizons! 31-08-2009

Our Upper Humber wind sock and anenmometer.... Drax power station at 65km distant and the Humber Bridge beyond at c100km distant.... both as seen from our watchpoint this morning just after sunrise!
Double click the photo to make it bigger and see the bridge!! (c) 2009

York Minster as seen from our watch point this morning just after sunrise... you dont normally get this amount of contrast but the mist over the plane of York and Yorkshire Wolds beyond formed a white albeit sun tinted backdrop (c) 2009

Pudsey church in the foreground with Selby Abbey just below the far horizon mid picture... again the dackdrop of sun tinted mist made for the contrast (c) 2009

The "Coal Works" horizon.... somewhere in South Yorks... with Lincolnshire beyond does anyone recognize it? because we dont!... nb it might not be a coal works... thats just what we call it (c) 2009

The Scunthorpe Steel Works horizon in North Lincolnshire... Morley Town Hall is the clock tower building with the domed roof on the middle horizon!
Double Click the photograph to make it bigger and see the detail! (c) 2009
All these far horizon shots taken this morning just after sunrise from our watchpoint.

As you will know Bri it often gets clearer than this but not with the misty background to emphasise the nearer horizons and features.
