Thank you for your kind explanation, Amelia. I'm quite lazy sometimes, and am content to see what I think I want to see.

Great aerial Amelia, wonderful winter scenery.

Hilsen Nico

Fantastic shot Amelia, with shap, beautiful detailes. Is it really through the window of an airplaine ? excellent photo! Are we going into a new ice-age, in Minnesota it was last week -39 C...

Cheers, Zsuzsanna

This is a very amazing and interesting view of your snowy homeland, Amelia! Looking at it in XXL-size is a must, especially because of the village, streets and hedges in the foreground. It gives a sense for the true proportions. In the thumbnail it looks like archipelago (skjærgården) on the coast. We heard the news from the frozen states in England. Now I can see it myself. Thanks!

Cheers, Klaus

Another stunning shot, Amelia, especially since it was taken from an airplane! I zoomed in twice in order to see all the details! The entire landscape looks frozen! I'mnominating this one for the Best of Pano! Greetings, Anne

Hi Amelia, you have similar landscapes in Norway! Have you already seen it?

Cheers, Klaus

WOW Amelia, Y* and Best of for me. I have tried a thousand times to take such photos from an airplane and never managed. Lovely and so clear, and vey cold ... looks like Greenland rather than England, or like a glacier. Beautiful wide horizon, too. Love from Maja

Nice shot Amelia!... The green and pleasant Land looking more like Green-land and all because it's all white ! :)) Nick

Nice shot! Beautiful horizon. Good capture!

Best regards, Agneta

Dear Nico and Gregory, many thanks for your compliments, and many apologies for the late reply.

I think this was an exceptionally cold winter in the UK Nico, and maybe that is why they have accepted an aerial photo for GE - it doesn't normally look like this :))

The mountain range in Poland has almost the same name Gregory ... we are all part of Europe now :))

Warm greetings, Amelia

Hi Zsuzsanna, well you could be right about another ice age. If the Gulf Stream switches of around Britain we will have exceptionally cold winters (and summers too) ;-)

Dear Klaus, I'm so pleased that you opened this one up to XXL. We knew that it was cold here, but it really came home to us how bad it really was, countrywide, when we were flying over the UK. The Pennines are not high, and range from about 500 metres to 850 metres in height. The 'Backbone of England' was frozen to the core :))

Warm greetings, Amelia
