Where were you? Windswept sprog and dog

Clinging on to his dad for dear life so he doesn't get blown off the hill, Young Simon can be seen next to Big Mike who is proudly bearing his chest which bears our glorious T-shirt.

You can get a flavour for just how windy it was up there by checking out their pooch and his flying fur!

Apparently this was snapped at OS Grid ref NY347051 or more commonly known as LOUGHRIGG FELL which allegedly is at an elevation 1,099 feet making it officially a mountain, which interestingly enough, would make it tenuously linked to the lesser known Hugh Grant film The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain

So, the scores are in

1. The Location - 3.5 (High winds, spectacular views of the Lake district indeed, but, another photo with no visible signage a irrefutable proof of the location so unfortunately docked 0.5 points. Rules is rules . . . )

2. The Pose - 3.5 (good gritted teeth pose which comes close so to pointless grandeur)

3. The X-Factor - 3.5 - (the spectacular views, sturdiness of Mike's pose and the flying pooch all add to the aura of Magnificence)

Making 10.5 -
making the highest scoring entry from someone at this height in the Lake District yet received - can you beat this?
