Title • the portal

I'll give anyone who can correctly identify this image (in terms of content and location) a free 9x6" print. Three clues: the high res' version is a 32.74 megapixel file (so would make a great H U G E print), it was shot with my 20D, and the green isn't really green ;-)

Oh, and John Washington and Mark Power are both banned from taking part as they were with me when this was taken :-)

Update: Ok, we have a winner, and it's not JD with his monkey hypothesis (though he was right that it's the decking on the north pier, as were a few more of you); but the outright winner is Dave who said:

"Is it decking on Blackpool's north pier with a section of tram track?"

Strictly speaking I suppose I could argue that it's a train track rather than a tram track, but I suspect that that might be a little pedantic of me ;-)

Oh, and in case you're interested, there's a correctly coloured version of the original here:


And finally, my apologies if you thought the title was a clue. It wasn't ;-)

Update #2: I've just had a quick conversation with Dave and he feels as though he had an unfair advantage over the rest of you in that he also lives in Blackpool (only about half a mile from me, though we've not met up), so the closest comments prior to his (there were two of them a few seconds apart) are from Terry and Chris. I'll send both of them a print.
