Holiday Sunset

Searching for an image yesterday and this one flashed across the screen.

It made me double-take.  Perhaps because the falling pound means that the family ski-ing holiday is on hold for another year, or because UK holidays are the thing for 2009, or because there have been protestors sitting on the runway at Stanstead (good luck to them, seriously...) and the third runway for Heathrow is in the news again

But it felt like the meaning of this image is in a serious transition.  From on the one hand, romantic, exotic, exciting, appealing... and,  on the other hand, polluting, past-it, irresponsible, climate warming....

Perhaps we should be able to list a thousand words here?  Interesting how fast they change.
