Nothing particularly striking or special about this photo. It was taken on the Snake Pass in The Peak District on a cool foggy morning at a place called Nether North Grain. The one thing that marks it out against all my other photos is when it was taken, on the 11 November 2011 at 11 minutes past 11, or to write that time and date out using the following system, yymmddhhmm, it comes up as 1111111111. The world didn't end, a chorus of angels didn't burst into song, the pyramids didn't take off and vanish into space to rejoin their makers, a new world order didn't start in which all debts were wiped out (Pity). It just a time and date that won't turn up again for a hundred years. But the same could be said for any such date.
