Everything is relative.  That's very  mildly undulating at best.   ;D

Some beautiful photographs in this thread. Some of them make me think I should take a camera with me on rides.

Some of Lincolnshire is flat... and some of it is not...

Do you have a picture of the bits that aren't flat? ;)

We've just got back from visiting the apartment in Liguria we've inherited. It's a bit of a white elephant - it's going to take some work and expense to get it into a usable state but will probably be worth it because the location is gorgeous, about ten miles inland from the coast, halfway up a steep, wooded valley (on the edge of the Maritime Alps). I experimented with the panorama setting on the iPhone and took these pictures (click for bigger) - not great works of photography but they give an impression of the setting...

This is the view from the balcony of the apartment:


The view from the car park about half a mile down the road - the apartment is in the village on the left of the pic:


(Posting the pics here is partly an act of marketing, since the long-term plan is to make the apartment available for holiday lets.)

Looks a bit nicer than Whitstabubble.

Yes, I applied a graduated filter to desaturated that bit, which made the yellow colour pop out even more.

Steph's first photo made me think of this.  Taken with my old phone (I really wish I'd had a decent camera that evening) at sunset, a few hundred yards from Stonehenge, and just before I got rained on in Biblical fashion.

That first one was in Denmark, as one of an awful lot of books of the bible prepared to drench me.

Just past Offham, outside of Lewes in Sussex. As usual it doesn't quite capture the reality.

Certainly never seen cycling south of Sussex

Great pictures. Not easy to get the feel of being in the forest, but you certainly have. Love the one in the open, too.

Thanks!

An interesting site for a chainsaw course, plenty of trees, but plenty of chances to hang them up. I speak as a chainsaw instructor. A lot of the course could be spent dealing with trees stuck in other trees.

That was the main point. Part of the assessment is to hang up trees and then deal with them. Actually I managed to fell a lot of trees without hanging up as there were racks within the forest into which to fell. Provided your aim was good, then they rarely got hung up. They were very long/tall though, even the little ones.
