This is a photo of submitted by Huw Oliver from just off the Nan Beild Pass in the Lake District. It’s a wonderful place to be, but with two lakes on the route there is enough water about to summon an urge to urinate, leading to this scenic pee.
It may look like Izaak here, who submitted this lovely photo of himself with a good, strong, stream from Snowdon, is weeing into a lake. Fortunately, he’s not- the lake is not small, it is just far away.
Top tip if you want to keep scenic pees scenic- don’t wee into any lakes, streams, rivers etc. It’s bad wilderness urination etiquette.
Lecture over, keep urinating!
As the days grow shorter these stunning sunsets are becoming easier to wee in front of. This submission is from Andrew in Derbyshire of one of his riding buddies urinating onto some climbers on Froggatt Edge in the Peak District.
I’ve also had an e-mail from Tom Adams about our Throwback Tuesday post- apparently that photo is him on top of Glencoe Ski Centre. Thanks Tom!
This is Rick from Monmouthshire, braving that most tricky challenge- capturing a scenic pee with only 10 seconds from camera button press to run to your position, undo your shorts (or stop them falling down if you have done it in readiness), get the tools for the job out and then summon a stream. This is a valiant effort and a great way for the shy to get a scenic pee done.
As it’s been two weeks since the last post, it’s time for something special. Harry from Slovenia has submitted- brace yourselves- a female scenic pee.
“And this is a girl pissing in some lavender, in Lagrasse in France. She is called Jenny and she is from Scotland.”
While I appreciate the effort, it does break most of the rules of the scenic pee- no stream visible at all. This could just be a girl sat in some lavender. So, while it does set a precedent for female scenic pees it does set the bar good and low for any girls wishing to turn their hand (?) to relieving themselves in stunning places. Go out there and do better, ladies.
This submission comes from Mike Wilson, owner of http://www.inspiring-riding.co.nz/ which is a pretty cool site for his magazine Journey, which is like The Ride Journal, about adventures.
You can purchase his next issue (or that and all the back issues) through his crowd funding site.
Enough plugging, more peeing, here’s what Mike has to say about this photo. It seems he was planning on creating a rival for scenicpees.com (although we have since agreed that the marketplacefor photos of people pissing on beautiful things is full- “I think I’ll leave the weeing in the countryside market all to you for now”)-
“Hi! I’ve just found your site and it’s great. I’ve threatened for some time to launch a site called Wilderness Wees and have gathered a fair collection of shots of mates while on adventure rides for journey-magazine.com – a mostly print journal about cycling.
I’ve uploaded one of the more scenic ones I can find at the moment. It’s of my friend Paul Smith – co-founder of our magazine having a pee at Poolburn Dam, Central Otago in New Zealand.”
