I so much wanted to get something of the avenue from the air Nick, having snapped it every which way from the ground, but it needed something like Badbury rings to make it of something more than personal interest - again, we were in Bournemouth airspace, so we had to plot a straight course and couldn't circle - the pilot banked for me to get one shot over his shoulder through the back window, and praise God it was sharp !!

A great aerial series Graham. We've seen this feature before but this really shows it's characteristics well. And your yellow rape seed fields add a brilliance of contrast to the shot. Well done.
Best regards, Tom

the line of trees behind badbury rings is part of my beech avenue, Tom - which os what I was realy after, but as i said to Nick, the rings make the picture (along with a lot of quick reactions and luck ;) )
Most of all, it was fun, though - and i was really happy with results like this.

I think perhaps that Badbury rings would be a perilous place to alight, Roma...

Is it Graham?I do not know!I hope that this year I can see Badbury rings with my eyes and tell You about...:)

I can't find the word I want Roma - but it seems a place more suited to crows than eagles to me...

Very interesting landscape, Graham. What is it, an old fort? And then I saw the mysterious sighns in the Google map. A prehistoric site as Stonhenge?
Greetings from Hamburg, Klaus

It's a bit later than Stonehenge Klaus - it's iron-age - what the call a hill fort - Dorset is full of them - I think they were intended as defensible strongholds that the locals could withdraw to when under threat - thanks for the visit and comments :)
