Those are wonderful, thanks TA!

After the first few I turned photo viewing into a geography quiz.

Scroll down far enough to see the picture but not the caption and see if you can figure out where it is. I have to admit I embarrassed myself, but I blame it on the fact that I didn't know how really beautiful those places are.....eeek(not eek, but WOW!)

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

They are wondrous aren't they?  Michelle, I am so hopeless at geography that I had to look at each picture to see where in the world it was...there is just no hope - truly! big_laugh

I'll try that again!

Oh, there you are Danuta, are you well?  I must admit to being overawed by those shots and one of them I can't work out at all~the third one down.

I'll try that again!

No. 22 looks like a constellation of golden stars in the shape of a running deer.  Lovely.

Gone crazy. Back soon.

Stunning, yes, but I can't look at aerial photographs without suffering a touch of vertigo.  It can really get in the way of enjoying a beautiful view.  Yet I'm fine going up mountains.

Odd

Well, that didn't go quite as expected

LOVELY PHOTOS!

 

I dont get vertigo from these but I do find it very disconcerting when something comes at me from the tv; I often duck!

Glad you like them Shelley, well everyone really.  I have a problem with vertigo but, oddly, I can look down from a plane and these shots don't faze me at all, but I can't look down from bridges or climb high steps or look out over battlements in castles.  Weird, me?  big_laugh  Oh and I can't watch the weather news on the BBC when they whiz around the UK.

I'll try that again!

Those are lovely, TA; thanks for sharing them. I loved the ones where you could see the outline of recognisable land - like Cyprus and Greece 🙂
