Milano Duomo is the 5th largest Cathedral in the world and among this list of five – it is the oldest Cathedral. The day before I took this photo, we were enjoying some “Spritz” with a friend in a rooftop bar. From there, we had a view of the top of the Cathedral. From a bird’s eye view, you can see the many sculptures that are decorating the Duomo Towers.
Who doesn’t think of Tuscany when they hear of hills and vineyards? The interesting thing is that it is not just the wineries that are built on the hills – the cities take advantage of the terrain. Sienna is one of them – you could walk through the old town and enjoy the view of the sights from a distance.
For many decades after the establishment of Florence Duomo in the 13th Century, the Florence Cathedral was opened, and it took the genius mind of Filippo Brunelleschi to figure out exactly how to build the dome, the first of its kind in the 15th Century. In our day today, it dominates the skyline of the city and makes you marvel at how this structure survived through the ages.
A beautiful place so crowded during the day, the London Millennium Bridge during the early morning hours was finally deserted. You should see the view at least once when the city sleeps, and St. Paul’s Cathedral is still enlightened. I have heard that the London Millennium footbridge is known by many locals as the “Wobbly Bridge” and I wondered why – especially as I did not feel any shaky movements (even while running to capture the sun rising over The Thames).
On this photograph I took, I captured a path showing The El Pilar Basilica-Cathedral with The Ebro River in front (and yes, the results brought muddy shoes yet again). When I went under the bridge to head direction to spot the blue hour, I thought that this composition of the bridge, with the warm reflections of the setting sun and the Cathedral in the background created a truly unique view.
