taken 8 years ago, near to Lewknor, Oxfordshire, Great Britain

M40 Chalk Face
M40 Chalk Face
The chalk cutting on the M40 motorway as it climbs the Chilterns escarpment refuses to heal even after 40 years. Travelling London bound and taken through the windscreen whilst moving. See also my photograph SU7396 : Landscape Destruction or Engineering Triumph?
