  1. Here is a photo I took recently at the seaside near Corby in the UK that shows the curvature of the earth... https://flic.kr/p/Vb6dqt I've also attached the photo... Look carefully at the horizon where the sea meets the sky. The furthest wind turbines seem to be beyond the brow of a hill... except that there is no hill because it's the sea and the sea has to be "flat". Therefore, what you're seeing is the "hill" created by the curvature of the earth! I'm not sure if the photo attached here will have enough resolution... probably best to go to flickr version.
