Mount Cleese, eh - so-named by the Ministry of Silly Walks? (Or Recycling? 😉 )
Mt. Cleese ? Palmerston North, New Zealand - Atlas Obscura will clear it all up.

" One person who certainly got a kick out of Mt. Cleese was Cleese’s fellow Python and long-term friend Eric Idle. He visited Mt. Cleese in March 2016 and posted a photo of himself with the Mt. Cleese sign on Twitter. “I summited without oxygen,” he wrote, clearly approving of the tribute to his friend. "


I suspect JC would approve of it himself!

Was that synchronized swimming, or rugby?

Just got a Weltblick 135mm f1.8 off the man with a 1000 lenses!
Porst, Spiratone, Apollo ...et al (Mitake) 135mm f1.8 Tele MC Lens Reviews - Miscellaneous Lenses - Pentax Lens Review Database

According to "how much blur" it is officially my "blurryest" lens! Another one for the portrait stable.
He has a lot up on TM at the mo.

As someone who lives in Palmerston North Iím offended. Not going to actually disagree with you, but feel obligated to at least register my objection 😂

Sorry Richard! No offence intended. I might add that we very occasionally go to Palmy for shopping or cycling and running and I find it a very bicycle friendly town.

Generally, I reserve my worst comments for Bluff. The only 'town' (if it can be called such) in New Zealand where I saw a car on blocks on the main street.

No, that's seen here too, although only near the Warehouse and Pack'nSave.
