Towering Perspective by m4photo

This is another classic view of the Eiffel Tower reaching up into the heavens. This was a trying shot owing to the thousands of people milling around the bottom of the tower and the tens of toy lights being waved and flying up into the air, and also people walking in front of and standing in front of the camera.

That said, I think that i nailed this one for the Paris portfolio.

This is another of my Eiffel Tower images that cannot be purchased without a license for the illuminated tower. If you are interested in licensing this image please contact me and I’ll explain more.

Gold In Night by mindhunts1

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque was initiated by the late president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE),
His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who wanted to establish a structure which unites the cultural diversity of Islamic world, the historical and modern values of architecture and art.The design of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque has been inspired by Persian, Mughal and Moorish mosque architecture,
particularly the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan and the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco being direct influences. The dome layout and floorplan of the mosque was inspired by the Badshahi Mosque and the architecture was inspired by Persian, Mughal and Moorish design. Its archways are quintessentially Moorish and its minarets classically Arab.
The design of the mosque can be best described as a fusion of Arab, Persian, Mughal and Moorish architecture.

Sunbreak Over Djurgårdskyrkan by mixbsd

Taken around 1800h local time on a mostly cloudy day, the setting sun briefly broke through the cloud cover just above Djurgårdskyrkan in Stockholm, Sweden

A sight to behold, only the crepuscular rays were missing!

I really couldn’t crop this image any more, as I would have lost the sheer vastness of the beautiful sky. Unfortunately, the overhead tram power lines do provide a bit of distraction.
