Those mischief making lads from London did an advert
circle right next to Tony Hughs' microlight airstrip last weekend.
Tony asked me to take an aerial shot of the circle with his landing
strip in the background for publicity purposes. But, the design really
wasn't pretty at all (John Lundberg did warn me of that it wouldn't be
worth taking the flight!), so I got the idea of superimposing one of my
favourite formations onto the field.
This was a VERY time consuming Photoshop job! Both shots were taken from
different perspectives, so imagine having to adjust rotating, tilting,
stretching and squeezing the circle until it fits the tramlines. Then

picture is a hoax if they didn't look closely. (Must be the
Scrumpy, the way those tramlines don't quite match -- chalk it up to
I'll post a bunch of advert formations -- including the one that's
actually next to Tony -- at the end of the summer, after I've finished
