Saturday Snapshots (late again)

I completely forgot to post my photo for Chere’s Saturday Snapshots but I like the whole idea of someone posing the criteria and I see which photo it comes up with, so I’m posting this anyway.

This is from my penultimate photo folder, first photo in the 10th row.  It was taken in London in 2001 and is the view from the Tate Modern Gallery, looking across the Thames towards St Paul’s Cathedral.  The recently opened Millennium Footbridge is in the foreground. 

The skies were so, so grey that day that the colour version looked, well ~bleuch~.  I changed it to black and white, which does at least give more definition to the buildings. 

I’d love to see some of your photos so why not join in the ‘Saturday Snapshots Carnival’, even if, like me you are late posting?

There is a wonderful set of images posted at the moment on The Big Picture site, all by photographer Jason Hawkes.  Jason has been photographing aerial shots since 1991 and I just love the different view that this gives us of the world – both thought provoking and beautiful.  It’s very hard to pick just one favourite.  This one below caught my eye because it’s of tomatoes dumped on the banks of the River Durance in France.  From the air it looks like a painting.  Go and have a look for yourself at this great collection.

Top o' the world

Ever wanted to know what the views look like at the top of Mount Everest?  Well, they’re every bit as wonderful as you might imagine.  I had forgotten about this site until I visited my Stumbleupon account today for the first time in about 18 months.  You may well have seen this already.  If not, go visit.  There are loads of beautiful 360 degree panoramas from all over the world so if Everest doesn’t float your boat this a.m., pick something else!
