bird’s eye view.

21 Jul

I’ve recently started reading more travel blogs, and one in particular (Adventurous Kate) featured this post last week, showcasing 6 European cities from above. The photos were stunning, and it made me reminisce about some of the cities (European and North American) I’ve seen from a bird’s eye view...

Los Angeles, California from the Getty Museum

London, England from the London Eye

Berkeley and Oakland, California from the Campanile (Sather Tower) at the University of California, Berkeley

Paris, France from the Eiffel Tower

Seattle, Washington from the Space Needle

Seville, Spain from the Cathedral

Lisbon, Portugal from outside my hostel

Barcelona, Spain from the spires of La Sagrada Familia

What’s the coolest bird’s eye view you’ve ever seen?

    If it’s not a cityscape, does it count as a bird’s eye view? If so…then of course all the beautiful views we have seen along our excellent hikes on the fire trail or on Mt. Whitney.

      Haha that definitely counts, Amy! You’re right – the view from the top of the fire trail is pretty epic…After 4 years of going up there I never brought a camera!

    Thanks for the shout-out! I LOVE your pictures, especially the shots of Paris and Sevilla! I was actually planning a showcase of readers’ photos from above — when I decide to do it (probably late next week at the earliest), I’d love to include one of your pictures!

      Thank you! I would LOVE to be included in that post! I’m totally with you, the absolute best way to see a city for the first time is from above (after scouting out the best bars of course)!
