Nope. All we have is words:
In reply to a post by cheshire_man:
his wallpaper a scene of a country road winding its way through hilly countryside. Lots of green grass either side of the road. It would be a great road to ride a motorbike on.

Thanks, on my PC that is my desktop, though it doesn't have the .jpg filetype, changing a copy to .jpg shows it to be as expected. The file's properties don't have any detail of its origin though.

When I can I'll have a look on my friend's PC.

That makes sense, it's an Acer laptop!

Can't see that photo on any Acer wallpaper sites.

As an aside, I didn't know you could ask Google like that, but a quick Google told me about Google's Reverse Image capability, a few seconds later I also had the answer. Thank you.

Now to try to find out where that scene is....

We've driven past Mam Tor several times, but not on that particular stretch of road. Certainly it's an area for motorcyclists to ride.

Google went straight for monitors for me, where as tineye.com went to gettyimages of it with single click to The bendy road
