The location 51.0 degrees North 0.0 degrees East is situated towards the the north east boundary of a low-lying field close to surrounding trees.

The shot was taken looking north across the field where the grid intersection is at the centre of the tree line on the left of the image.

I was able to access the exact location of the grid intersection. The image is taken with broadly south to the top of the image and broadly north to the bottom of the image. Given it was taken by a drone I was able to get directly over the intersection. 

The intersection point is broadly central (left/right) in the lighter green area of the overall field, to the right of the farm track that is itself to the right of the ‘white’ tree.

The intersection of 51N 1W is visible as a farm building on the horizon on the left hand upper middle third. I took this photograph about 1/2 km away from the intersection, facing south east into the winter sunrise.

The intersection point is roughly in the middle of the main field shown. The drone was about 100m linear distance from the intersection point and the photo was taken from an altitude of about 55m. The camera was facing SE or ESE.

The puddle-arrow points to the middle of the field where intersection of 51N 2W lies. I was about 80 metres from the point at 50°59'58" N 2°00'02" W and at 155 metres altitude. I was facing east on 30th January 2022 as the winter sun was close to setting. This is a lovely part of Cranborne Chase at the southern end of Wiltshire close to the intersection with Hampshire and Dorset. The nearest village is Bowerchalke where the river Chalke rises and flows into the nearby River Ebble.

The intersection is in a field in slightly undulating countryside, at the foot of a gentle south east facing slope, a good location for a shot at sunrise. Standing behind a lopsided, but interesting oak, I was about 270 metres north west of the intersection itself, which is visible in the adjacent field, near the bottom of the image, about a quarter of the way in from the left edge. My GPS recorded 51°0'2.8765" N 3°0'14.0135" W as my location.

51N 3W is in the middle of a field, which, as far as I could tell, is not visible from public land. The field was grassed and essentially featureless. This being the case, I opted for a sunset shot, there being no obvious merit in getting up early for a sunrise shot. I hoped that the sky or light would be a redeeming feature. I walked the lane close to the location, looking for inspiration. As the sun set in a cloudless sky, things weren’t promising. I then photographed a passing car, looking for motion blur. Eventually, I thought about light trails. This image reflects that character of this rural location, with windy lanes and high hedgerows. The location I shot from was approximately 100m southeast of the actual location, which wasn’t visible due to several hedges between me and it.

The location lies in a field off the A377, between a track running south that divides the field and an adjacent area of woodland to the east. I took some shots of the track but preferred the view across the intersection to the woodland, which had some nice light falling intermittently through some fast-moving clouds. I used my 100-400mm lens to focus on the boundary hedge and beyond.

The photo was taken by drone from a height of about 60m, from a point about 400m distant from the intersection of 51N/4W. The intersection is located in the left half of the main field in the photo, about two thirds of the distance from the road to the far end of the field, and about halfway from the tractor track in the middle of the field to the wooded area on its left border.

My exact location was: Longitude 0. 59’ 33.156” East and Latitude 52. 0’ 1.14” North.  This was a dangerous position at the edge of a busy country road just north of the village of Holton St. Mary, Suffolk; the road led to an enterprise zone.  I was facing east.  I was approximately 250 metres west of the intersection.  The intersection itself was, facing the image, along the right hand side of the tractor track and about half way up the green field at the base of the image.

Taken from about 20 metres west of the intersection of 52N 1E, facing roughly east. The intersection is just to the left of the dominant trees on the right side of the frame.The intersection was actually quite easy to access as there is a public footpath running along the adjacent field boundary. However as the location is fairly featureless, I felt that a low-angle "worm's eye" view might inject a little extra interest in the scene.

The solar panels are facing south, and the CCTV camera is facing in the direction of the exact intersection point located about 150m to the west in the middle of the solar panels farm. My exact location is 51.9997N, 0.0023E about 15m south of the CCTV camera. In early afternoon, the sun projects shadows eastwards, illustrating that sun, energy, light and shadows are inseparable entities.

The actual intersection is amongst the undergrowth on the right hand side of the image.

The intersection of 53N 4W is alongside one of the Diffwys lakes in the Moelwyns in Snowdonia. Having climbed as far as the exact location it seemed a shame not to climb a bit further to elevate myself above and look back over the intersection to show it in its storm-beaten surroundings. The image was taken at 53°00'10.0"N 3°59'50.0"W. The intersection is at the left-hand side of the picture 360m away and is located underneath the left-most limb of the left-hand lake.

The intersection is situated just off the A64 Leeds to Scarborough road at Stockton on the Forest. Its actual position is located on private land. Three attempts to speak with the landowner proved unsuccessful. By accessing the land as far as I could without damaging any planted crops and walking as close to the edge of the fields as possible, I was able to take the image of the intersection.

Because of long covid there was no way I would be able to get to the top of the hill. Having researched the area I tried to get the closest road to the intersection. As it happened there is a lay-by at 58.02, -5.07. As I was planning what to do, this shot appeared. it would have been seen from the intersection looking W. It's 3 miles from the intersection at the top of the hill and it also seems to align with the Moine Thrust.

58N 7W is adjacent to Loch Bràigh Bheagarais in the mountains of North Harris, some 4.5Km from the nearest vehicular access. I hadn’t particularly planned to photograph this intersection but it seemed like a good idea while on Harris  Read more...

58N 7W is on top of a crag to the east of and overlooking Loch Bràigh Bheagarais on the Isle of Harris. Although I managed to climb onto the crag the January wind was brutally strong at the exposed top, with a sustained wind that made it unsafe for me to stand, let alone take pictures. Read more...

58N 7W on Harris is one of the most scenic latitude and longitude intersections in the whole country. I camped at the spot overnight with my wife and our dog at the end of May hoping for a sunset but instead finding overcast conditions and an icy northerly wind. I was up at 4.30am the following morning to find clear skies and I made my way to the northern side of Loch Braigh Bheagarais to align the loch with the distant view of the Harris hills and Luskentyre. This photo was taken at 58°00’05”N 7”00’09”W. The true intersection lies just 300m from this point, on the far left edge of the image, but ultimately this majestic view was too much to pass up!

The intersection 59N 3W was in a field behind me. Due to a busy road I picked a safer place 500m away. This was close to Kirkwall, Orkney looking North. Taken at sunset, the low mist just hung around for days as it seems to do in March.

This intersection lies in a field on the southern side of the A965, just outside Kirkwall. Unable to easily access the field, my image was made from the roadside, approximately 100 metres north of the intersection, facing east towards Hatston industrial estate and ferry terminal. The intersection itself is not included.

Of all the wonderful places in Orkney, 59N 3W has to be in an uninteresting field!  Photographed looking approximately west from the A965.

The intersection 59N 3W is in the green fields, just beyond and to the left of the small farm building located in the field left of centre with all the sheep.  The image is a panorama taken from Wideford Hill looking north west.  The island of Shapinsay is the main land mass visible across the water. Behind Shapinsay you can see one of the vast cruise liners which visit the Orkney archipelago every year.  The viewpoint on Wideford Hill is about one mile from the intersection.
