I love this image. Even though it doesn't necessarily show a geographical feature, it does show how man has adapted the surroundings for survival. It would be a pity not to include on the GE layer - I would definitely call it 'descriptive'. I hope you don't mind, I'm going to use some of your ideas next time I'm out and about.

The only slight change I would make would be to adjust the levels slightly so the tiles at the top left are not quite so bleached.

Thank you for your comments. The roof is newly laid, as you can see from the lack of moss and lichen. I will try to find an old roof, to illustrate what nature can add over time. And post some roof tiles from your area, perhaps it is time for a "tiles" tag.

I'll start looking... In the mean time, here's an old scan from Italy.
