Thematic Photographic 146: Aerial

This is probably the most testing theme I've seen since I started participating in Carmi's weekly photographic fun (for other posts see here)

I can't seem to come up with any lateral thinking idea, and I've no pics taken from a space shuttle or an aeroplane...

So herewith some shots taken from high(ish) places: please click to enlarge
An intersection in Barcelona, taken from the roof of Gaudi's "La Pedrera":

Monastery almost aerial, in Meteora, Greece:

o shots of the beautiful blue Mediterranean, from high up n the cliffs of Capri:

And Portofino, taken from the Castle at the top of the town:

Lastly and laterally, Ariel from A Midsummer Night's Dream

Full fathom five thy father lies;
of his bones are coral made;
Those are pearls that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange


  1. Nice photos ... they make me miss the mountains. Flat lands are so much more boring to look at.

  2. These are fine for the this week's theme. I liked the Ariel touch. I'm half expecting someone to come up with a photo of a packet of Ariel washing powder.

  3. One of the things I miss from living in the Boston area is the ocean, and your pictures make me miss it even more. But, as always, a collection of great pictures!

  4. You make even the challenging look easy. These photos, diverse as they are, are all uniquely spectacular.

    Consider me blown away yet again - you have such a gift.


It's great when you leave a note!
