Liverpool, north west England. Release of a racing pigeon from basket (left). Even though I knew they left the basket at high speed I was not quite prepared for the bullet like velocity so despite high shutter speed and ISO I only caught part of the bird.

For those not from the the UK the title is a tilt at the stereotypical view that us northerners live in an Orwellian 'Road to Wigan Pier' gloom !
