This is the view of St. Mark’s Basilica from the top of the Campanile, which is the bell tower of the Basilica. As you can see, the bell tower gives you some of the best views over Venice. Looking in the opposite direction you can look down into the world famous St. Mark’s Square directly below. My uncle Tim had warned me not to go up on the hour as this is a bell tower, apparently he was up there when the clock struck 12 and the bells are very loud.
The Printworks is an entertainment venue in the centre of Manchester. This is the modern side of the large building which houses a number of popular clubs, bars and restaurants as well as a 23 screen cinema and an IMAX 3D Screen. This photograph was captured from the top level of the Shudehill interchange. You can see the Metrolink tram station at the bottom of the frame.
A few years back I was lucky enough to go for a flying lesson in a light aircraft. Obviously I was focused mainly on taking off, flying around and landing the plane, but I did take my camera for a couple of quick grab shots through the window. Above we can see the newly completed (at the time) Chill Factore indoor ski slope. To the right is Barton Bridge, taking the M60 motorway over the Manchester Ship Canal and in the foreground is the sewage works.
The above photo is one of my favourites from the few days I spent in Venice back in 2004. It was taken from St Mark’s Campanile and shows the amazing St. Mark’s Square. The small round dots in the shadowed area on the left side of the square are tables for people to enjoy a coffee around. It is definitely another place I want to revisit sometime in the future and some of the best views of the city can be seen from this point.
