This is a truly funny photo! Just proves that sometimes its the title that makes it.:D

Thanks Vicki. I'm glad you appreciate the humour. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw this and honestly I have no idea what it really is or why it is there - If anyone knows I'd love to hear?

I don't know but I gotta get me one. Superb garden art!

Nice one.

Jethrohoyt . Beats me what it is and it looks like it should have a plaque or a tourist board attached. Still it gave me an excuse to catch some more of the landscape.

Very amusing, Paul! I have been enjoying looking through your slideshow - so many lovely photos, I just can't comment on them all. Makes me want to see more of Scotland. Theolfa

I imagine that if you were to drill a hole through the Earth from somewhere in Australia that you would break through the opposite side of Earth that would be about here .

I found out where they would of drilled from , to hit that spot Ballarat Australia

Many thanks aussie45. I ran the co-ordinates through a program that calculates the opposite side of the earth and if it was a straight line the drill would be somewhere in the Southern Ocean off New Zealand. Of course you could be right as they maybe had ot avoid the earth's core ;-) All the best. Paul
