Saturday Photo Hunt - Important

Haven't done this for ages so I'm very much out of practise but here goes:

These are pictures of a statue (known as the Copper Horse) of George the Third of Great Britain, dressed as a Roman Emperor) who was considered very important because he was a king. It was during his reign that the United States of America and the United Kingdom were formed and those two events were certainly important to all concerned. Unfortunately, he eventually went mad.

The statue stands on the summit of Snow Hill in Windsor Great Park at the end of the Long Walk, which leads down to Windsor Castle, home to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second, a Very Important Person indeed.

Windsor Castle itself is a very important building because it's the largest, oldest inhabited castle in the world, dating back to the time of William the Conqueror in the 11th century. The picture here is not at all important because it was taken on a very cold and misty day and is absolute rubbish!

Happy Photo Hunting!

Good to see you back in the hunt. Those are all good photos for the theme. I love fog so I really liked the last shot.

I have no idea it was that old. Your history fascinates me.

Thank you all, friends (I can call you that, can't I?).

2007 was a bit of an iffy year for me, ups and downs, not many ups and a major down. But all is looking better now so hopefully 2008 will be better.

Nonetheless, I have been reading your blogs so keep up the good work.
