/ 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. They can be action, panorama, taken at dusk, day ... anything. Photos that show great climbing action. And photos that show the crag at its best.
Lets have a top 10.
I find the recent photos of Paradise Lost in Cheddar pretty inspiring:

It is inspiring to see such enthusiasm and appreciation for esoterica.
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
