That's what's missing in my life - living somewhere where one can just go out and take pictures like this, and having the will to get out of bed to do so.

I'm sure the sunsets in your local parks must be equally good.
And you seem to get out and about far more than I do.

That's like saying: "With a ladder and some glasses, you could see the Hackney Marshes, if it weren't for the houses in between".

In my local parks, the horizons (and the setting sun) are hidden behind buildings, and those buildings haven't got rustic roofs and chimney pots. I've uploaded the only picture it's possible to get within walking distance of here. I may get out and about every now and again, but I need to go a long way to get anywhere worth going to.

The Port Meadow is an ancient grassland on the river floodplain, which has been grazed for centuries and never ploughed. It is a Scheduled National Monument and Site of Scientific Interest, and an environmental haven for the people of Oxford.

But the meadow's wide open views have now been damaged by Oxford City Council allowing Oxford University to build a row of massive blocks around the south-eastern perimeter. This has been likened to building a skyscraper next to Stonehenge, and campaigners are fighting to have the top storeys removed.
