Fantastic treatment by +stuart murphy 
Victoria Tower
Castle Hill, Huddersfield, England.
Perched on Castle Hill overlooking Huddersfield, the tower was completed in 1899 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria's reign. The corner-stone of the tower was laid on 25 June 1898 by Mr John Frechville Ramsden and was officially opened by the Earl of Scarborough on 24 June 1899. The walls of the tower are four feet thick at the bottom, tapering to two feet at the top. The tower was renovated in 1960 when the top seven feet were removed. It reaches the height of almost 997 feet above sea level.

Quintessentially East Anglia! Stunningly beautiful shot by  +Tuan Nguyen 
Thurne sunset

I have not been back to Norfolk since I was a schoolkid, but I did remember though it is a very flat area, it did have some beautiful scenery. To all those wishing to travel to the UK, I would highly reccomend a visit to Thurne in Norfolk, it has a very charming windpump which has been restored to working order. If you are lucky, the sun will set behind it and illuminate and bathe the area in its warm light.

Happy Earthday!

Some of our London based members have noticed some of their working has been uploaded to a site selling prints commercially without their permission.

It might be worth taking a look to ensure your work hasn't ended up on there. 

Posted by +Mathew Hanley  .
Thieving gits!

So, to quote +Jake Johnson "I love it when I find out that a company is using my work for commercial use without my permission. " 

Thanks to +Kyla Myers for the ping to this and of course to +Jake Johnson for posting it.

Images of London that do not belong to the people selling them here. If you spot an image that belongs to someone you know in the galleries in the below link, please let them know. 

+UK Photography Community has the largest reach to UK G Plus members that I know so tagging them in.
