ahhhhhh! yes im impresssed! good one grafik!
you managed to get a good shot there considering you were moving by the looks of it? i so want to pull over there and get some real steady shots and night ones.

Awesome view point from there, really shows the bulk of the city!

i think my model needs bulking up a bit hahah!

mate, i've tryed getting to the highest point around gravelly hill and the surrounding area's but houses and everything get in the way, you just don't get as good as view as you do on the motorway! i'll keep trying lol

you need someone to drive you on the motorway so you can take photos

shame v tower will be slightly blocked though

ive just quickly messed around with that pic on paint, add snowhill, added colmore row natwest, and already the city looks awesome! well in terms of the shape anyway!

In terms of the flyover and taking photos.. one quiet night or even in the day, im going to pretend to break down! hahhaha, i think it has to be done to be honest!

Had a walk around Wasely Hills Country Park today, good views but visibility wasn't great, and it's a shame Frankley Beeches (I think that's what they are) are in the way.



A close up of where the Cube will be, you can just make out HCT



Looking out over what I assume is the Black Country?



Would these be the Clent Hills?



Some info on the source of the River Rea
