To infinity. From Dundee
A view out across the River Tay. Taken beneath the Tay Road Bridge. It was a beautiful view, the supports spanning out to infinity.
A photo over Athens
A couple pause to capture the beautiful view out across Athens. It might seem like a cliche, but if you get the chance to visit the birthplace of democracy I strongly recommend it.
