|Looking towards Ingleton|
|Can you ever get the artist out of the work?|
|Stereo audio: hydrophone (underwater) and ambient (handheld) mics|
|"What are you filming?".....|
|Time for a quick cache find!|
|Screengrab from groundwork's full iphone app - great way to see where you are from the air/topographical/route maps. Showing Ingleton Quarry, my location and direction of nearest geocache (NOT HG!).|
