Best of Britain: Looking ahead, looking back
The first two photos in this week’s Best of Britain show a possible future, and a touch of the past. The first photo shows a sculptor putting the finishing touches on an amazingly realistic wax representation of Cristiano Ronaldo, someone England had to face off against in the last World Cup, and may do so again.
The second photo is of a snowboarder enjoying the last bit of snow on Cairngorm Mountain in Scotland.
In between are photos from horse and bike races, a royal visit for wounded veterans, an unusual portrait, and a memorial for victims of last week’s shooting rampage.
