Excellent debut on the C5 Gallery Steve, but now we need a few of the C5 in interesting location shots from time to time, helps keep the thread fresh :-D

That's the type of thing! Now that is what I would call a naturally occuring photo. I would also encourage anyone who has a C5 to get out with their cameras and get creative and post the results up here!

Surprisingly few photos exist of either of our cars as I tend to take photos from them! I've trawled through quite a few folders on my laptop and I've found this one from July 2016. It shows the C5 X7, which I had bought on February 29th the same year, in the car park in Thiers, Puy-de-Dôme, France just below the observation platform.

No car here but this is the observation platform itself.

Come on you guys with the C5's and the cameras, has it not been teletubbyland weather with you today?

The gallery needs expanding so get those C5's washed and polished and go forth and multiply the original pictures on the C5 Gallery. Tesco/Morrisons/Asda/Safeways etc car park if you have too, but there are endless possibilities of location shots. Deliberately park next to another C5 for a random pair. Do an iconic film location, there will be one close enough. Choose a stately home or castle for one of those brochure shots. Sunsets, beaches, rivers canals, lakes, bridges just some kind of interesting backdrop.

The gallery is of course exclusively C5, so if all you have is a Volvo XC90 please do not drive it up to Yorkshire and sully this iconic view.

Drove past the Avenger's secret research station today so couldn't miss the opportunity:

My trouble is, is that my C5 hasn't turned a wheel in months. It's only generally used for medium to long trips - and I haven't made any of those recently :(
Sadly no longer a C5 owner :(

Not even an interesting cobweb on the "wing" mirror?

I have only seen mine a couple of times since March. It doesn't even live here any more.

The spiders seem to love getting inside the mirrors, I note both of mine are occupied and they pop out and grab any fly that lands close by.
