Two observations separated by 24 years...

About this image

I wasn't planning to take the image of the Straight Wall but it was so enticing I couldn't resist! On checking my records I found that, entirely by coincidence, I had  made a very similar observation with my newly-acquired SX200 24 years ago!

Hopefully my future posts won't be quite so whimsical!
