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.

I believe the intersection is slightly to the left of the field gate shown at the lower left edge of the photo. I chose to move the centre of the picture to the right, as I wanted to include the A378 road and the crossroads at mid-right.  Read more here

The top left of the image is at 52° 00’05”N 0° 00’06”E, 190 metres from the exact intersection in the middle of a solar farm. By moving away slightly, I was able to make an image which could be tied to a specific place by including part of the surrounding landscape.

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.

This beautiful, ‘Golden Oak’ is bang on the 52N.3W intersection in the middle of a field in the village of Michaelchurch Escley in Herefordshire. The village lies just a couple of miles east of the imposing Hatterall Ridge, which is a limb of the Black Mountains and also forms the border between Wales and England.  Read more here

It’s at the exact location, and I have some lovely nettle stings to prove it. I was passing nearby so thought I’d have a look. It’s not a good enough location for me to want to return so I’ve submitted an image I’m only content with.

At the 53N, 4W intersection, is to be found a small mountain lake. Along with its nearby twin, they are known as Y Llynnau Diffwys (The Diffwys Lakes). This area of Northern Eryri (Snowdonia) comprises Y Moelwynion (the Moelwyn Mountains). The mountain to the right in the image is Cnicht.  Read more here

Taken from about 100 meters from the intersection, because the farmer advised against entering the field with a bull in it. Taken looking in a SSE direction across the intersection.

As far as I could tell i was within about 100 yards of the intersection which as far as i could determine was in the middle of the trees to right of the photo which are part of a huge forest timber operation. I was facing east when it was taken.

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 here
