Agree. One of another fantastic set from McFly.

What's surprises me though is the curve in Green Lanes. Maps don't show any curvature. Earlier in the week I was at the top of Riverside House in Wood Green and was having trouble identifying landmarks in Harringay. Could that be because I wasn't allowing for the curve?

Thanks for the comments.

This apparent curve in Green Lanes is an effect seen a lot in aerial pictures. Going north along Green Lanes, there is a slight bend to the left starting roughly from Beresford Road. On a map (i.e. looking from directly above) the bend is very gentle but the angle this photo was taken from makes the bend look a lot tighter a than it is. We're looking at the bend from a long way away and at an angle almost parallel to the ground. Sorry to get a bit technical! It's a bit like looking at a round dinner plate on a table directly below your eye, it appears as a smooth circle. But if you lower your eye to just above the table level, the plate now looks oval shaped with tight curves at the sides.

Thanks McF - and I thought a photo was just a photo.
