/ Inspiring Limestone Crag Photos
Apologies if this is only mildy related to the ROCKTALK forum.
I spend most of my day sat on my arse in front of a computer so: I want a set of inspiring limestone climbing photos for my comp background, prefably in the UK.

I didn't appreciate there were such (half) buried gems in my own area.
There are some cracking pics of Steve Mc on Overshadow about on the net, for example:
I think the best one is the double page spread in the middle of the YMC Limestone guide, its a belter. Cannot find it on the net though. Its possibly Rainshadow, I cannot recall.
Oh and this, which isnt in the UK, but I cannot imagine any limestone more inspiring than the Verdon! I must have looked at every picture on the net before I went, and it was still mindblowing.

Haha, what the hell is that?.... piece of choss
Not a very complimentary view of Symonds Yat. A cheap shot I know. I actually rather like the Yat.
There is a good one of Chris Jackson (?) on Debauchery somewhere on ukc
