- Coming soon to an OS Explorer map near you…
…my photo! 😀 On the front cover of the Explorer 350 Edinburgh map, to be exact. Pretty chuffed.

Cheers! It was taken back in February; bunked off work for a bit to go catch the sunset. It’s such a great viewpoint, arguably better than going all the way up to the top of Arthur’s Seat 🙂
@martinhutch Yes, I thought that too. I suppose there’ll be honeypot areas (like Edinburgh, The Lakes, etc.) that’ll be stuffed full of decent photographers but other areas will be lacking. They’re still taking entries, presumably because there are areas which are quite under-represented.Posted 4 years agoMrSalmonMember

I’ve often wondered about the choice of photos on the front of many OS maps. They often a)could have been taken anywhere, and b)are really dated. I suppose b) isn’t all that important and is a bit nerdy (e.g. if any of them feature someone on a bike it’s bound to look like it came from the pages of a magazine from the early 90s) but I’ve always thought that a) was a bit odd.manvstarmacSubscriber
If you’ve entered and don’t win, a personalised map allows you to:
Centre it wherever you want
Name it whatever you want
Have your own photo on the cover
All for less than 20 of your British pounds
Just did this as the area I ride midweek exists in the corners of four 1:50,000 maps and planning new routes is a pain. Loved the ability to name it and have my photo too. Most definitely not in the league of the OP but a bit of fun.Posted 4 years ago
