Popped over the border from Notts to Lincs to find some better backgrounds for a photo shoot.

There is some very nice scenery in the NE Leices and South Lince area, John, and it looks like you found plenty of it!

Some of those photos could easily have been contemporary brochure or road test shots!

Plenty of potential material for Jeremy to use in The Viking, I think :)

Yes have been thinking of an update article on the car since it’s appearance on the Club stand in 2017 at the NEC
Will put pen to screen I think.
Thanks for the great feedback on the photos.

Wondering where else people think offers a good backdrop for our cars?
I am thinking there must be some photogenic locations in the Peak Distict.
Suggestions please people... :)

Great pics and a beautiful car. Peak District would be good for a meet up for me!

What about this for an autumn meet up, classic car clubs welcome large car park and outdoor seating. Food too.http://www.thecrispingreatlongstone.co. ... -car-clubs

I am sure we could find details on an interesting circular route.
Location is pretty central for Manchester, Birmingham, Yorkshire and further away locations well served by M1

Living in Notts, I am happy to help with organising and do a pre-visit

Perhaps you could repost in events to gauge interest?
