July Challenge - Skyline

Recommended Posts

I'm just doing this one for fun. Besides the fact that I'll never win it I won't be able to do the next Challenge if I do. But here goes. My skylines....

This isn't anywhere just yet. My favourite city having visited twice already this year. Will be back again in about 2.5 weeks time and will probably visit again later in the year.

The sky and most of all that sun are great. I can imagine the relief when the sun came out at all, and then in that spot!

Let's experiment a bit if we can show that here. If just a link or nothing at all appears hear, bear with me.

Thanks for that Wim!

 

The trip was planned around the position of the sun. It was sort of a relief but also worrying. As soon as it appeared flare started to appear on the image. However, it is there for less than 2 seconds and in the end I think it adds rather than takes away from the footage.

You have all made brilliant contributions so far!

There's one full week left.

 

a-large-dutch-seagull-herring-gull-larus

- This is not really a skyline, although it is high up.

It's more of a cityscape with a local ruler of the sky and roofs. -

 

A full week to put some of your own here. Or make changes ;-)

Remember: video is allowed and encouraged!

And: Extra points for creativity.

It's the Signal Tower for the weather.

According to this there was also a time ball a la Greenwich
