If you get a chance to visit over Christmas, they sometimes light this area with coloured lights.

"I'm in the money..." Kevin could not believe his luck.Just 2 weeks after losing his job and a month after his divorce was completed he'd hit the jackpot. He had no idea he even had an uncle in Africa and to find out by email he'd been left $32m had truly changed his life. All he had to do now was send the solicitor $15,000 to cover the legal expenses and wait for his big fat cheque to arrive next week. He didn't have $15,000, but a short-term loan from Joey the local loan-shark seemed like a great way to get the funds, even if Joey had a strict 'pay-up-or-die' policy. "I'm in the money..."

They took all the trees, and put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people a dollar and a half just to see 'em
Then they started taking the pets and the children and men called Kevin
After that, it was the badgers and the wild dogs, the kestrels and the tulips
Placed in a special 'wild things' exhibit for an extra $4
Nobody knew why the aliens did it, but people were too scared to complain
In case they were next to be 'museumed'

Doris used to go shoplifting in dark colours to help her blend into the background, but over time she got more and more of a thrill from 'lifting in increasingly garish outfits. Today she had acquired a copy of Vogue Magazine, a kitchen clock and some laptop batteries. She didn't need any of it but she couldn't resist the rush of adrenalin she felt whenever a shop assistant turned their back. Tomorrow she'd return for another 'shopping' spree in an even more colourful outfit with a matching cowboy hat and boots. If they didn't catch her soon her small flat would be completely full of things she didn't need or want.

David Blaine's '57 naked years in an empty box' was set to be his epic career-defining stunt. The first 3 years were the hardest; waving to spectators and trying to keep his morale high by humming show tunes to himself. But the massed crowds got bored and slowly wandered off, the TV crews found other events to cover and the newspapers found more interesting and more important stories to cover. After 6 years Blaine started to cheat by leaving the box at night and occasionally sleeping in a nearby hotel, booked under a pseudonym, from where he stole soap and shampoo. He slowly realised that all his 'stunts' were actually pointless and after 7 years never went back to the box and took a job at Amazon, ironically, boxing presents.

Hi Tome

Yes, I was lucky enough to get the use of a section of airfield for a couple of hours. When I arrived I immediately got a puncture so I had to walk half a mile home to change wheels as I'd removed my spare tube when I packed all my camera gear. I then took about 150 shots in various positions using a 18" long boom attached to the seat post and my 10-22mm lens at 10mm. When I got home I was quite disappointed with almost all of them and I didn't have a shot good enough to submit, so I went back to take some more. The trouble was that, even on a flat surface, there was enough 'wobble' in the boom to produce unwanted blur and soften the sharpness of the bike, but I narrowed down what set up looked best and I preferred the landscape format as it provided space for the bike to ride into.

On the second batch I took another 150+ images, trying to get the sun in the right position and taking enough that I'd eventually get one I was really happy with. I think that as a keen cyclist I had an exact image in my head and I wasn't getting it, but when I got home and had a look at the second batch there were 2 or 3 that were contenders.

I was lucky being able to get use of the airfield and with the position of the sun, and the fct that the sun came out at all.

Thanks for all the comments. I don't think I will top this score.

Nobody could remember when the portal had arrived. Some of the old timers seemed to remember a time when there was a clear horizon, but now everybody was used to its dominance of the skyline and had ceased to even notice it anymore. Until now. The gentle, almost inperceivable, hum had grown over a period of weeks until crowds had started to gather, and then the glow. Orange, into yellow, green and finally blue. Bright neon blue like St Elmo's fire reaching up to the clouds, through the clouds and beyond. Nobody knew it yet, but it was down this energy that 'they' would come. Tomorrow, they would come.
