Wow Gattina, it looks like you're having a great time in England! I enjoyed your pictures of London too, you've had some amazing pictures up all week! I can see that you're getting better and better at it!
I will be in London from Friday through to Monday, and I'm very much looking forward to it!

What a co-incidence! My brother owns the pub in the village by the Long Man - The Giants Rest in Wilmington. Did you drop in for a drink?

SandyCarlson said...

England sure is beautiful through your lens, Gattina! Greats stuff.

SHIELA said...

I would like to go there as well :)

Nice photos.

Happy Wednesday!

Melli said...

Gattina! I LOVE this! I had never even heard of hill figures or chalk figures before! Of course I had to read the wiki too and go off on a billion pig trails learning and learning some more! This was a fabulous post! (and I'm sO happy it ended with a DRAGON!!! Even two!) :)

Mar said...

It's easy to keep track of how many ww's you have. Search for all the wordless wednesday posts. Add a ww label to all of them (it's done instantly). See what the system tells you! I have always numbered my ww's,though, that's how I know today's is my 100th :)
Love the updated dragons!
Have a safe trip back home!

Carver said...

The chalk man and the dragons are both interesting shots. Great choices.

lareine said...

must be wonderful to take a hike there and trace the "long man" figure... and even more to see it from where you took the photo:)..

i hope you're having a wonderful time there (by the way, i like the castle photo with the two dragons:))... and i cross my fingers it's not too rainy there so you can enjoy afternoon walks in the countryside :)

Junebug said...

Gattina, have you seen the Rude Man? He's a lot like the Long Man only ruder! http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/majorsites/cerne_abbass.html

the teach said...

Great dragons, Gattina! I'm sure enjoying your England trip! :)

Not Afraid to Use It said...

I cannot wait to see this in real life. It is definitely on my to-do list!

claudie said...

I will read about the long man!
and love your dragons over the castle!

Lifecruiser said...

Wow. things like that is so impressive. I simply LOVE it.

Sorry for not being here for so long! Phust! Quite hectic life after being away for over 5 weeks! *whistles*

I kinda got lazy too, don't get anything but plurking or short messages around, no blogposts or blog visits! Bad, bad me!

I'll try to shape up!!!
