Nice pics, Tony!

Some of these (like the gliding strip and Herriot county) would make great backgrounds for composite screenshots. May we in the screenshot community use them as such?

Purty Please? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Very nice shots m8. The old mills one is beautiful. I live in the desert and that 1 frame has more trees and greenery than all of Maricopa county.

You must have that magical 'water falls from the sky' phenom.

In that pic of the York Minster, if you look above along that road at the bridge that crosses the river. Thats Lendal Bridge. My wife was crossing that bridge late one night after a few shandies and some fool tried to mug her. Big mistake. She got angry and threw the fool off the bridge into the river, but he grabbed onto her and dragged her over as well. She swam out, he was never seen again, i guess he swam out somewhere else.....

Trust me Gentlemen from one who knows.....what i tell you is indeed correct, perhaps i should not have let the cat out of the bag, and speaking as one that has seen them both, do no bother you will not get anywhere near them.... I got to see them through my work connections...

if it ever gets airborne as i dont think they will secure any design authority on the engine to allow it.

I hope she was ok from the experience Stolly and she held on to her bag http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
