This weeks challenge is ‘From Above’.
Sara Rosso says ‘Change your perspective on something. Share a photo of a subject which you shot from directly above. This plate of cheese from the Langhe region in Italy was interesting when I tried to take a picture of it, but when I took it from above, it became even more clear how the honey laid in a neat pile in the center of this circle of cheese and how each wedge had its own identity. For those interested, you started going clockwise with the cheese at 12, and they were all delicious.
Find a subject and instead of taking a picture from in front of, at an angle, to the side, or from behind, take it directly from above!
In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means FROM ABOVE to you!’
I have chosen some views from above from several countries, hope you like them and maybe join in?

Your photography is outstanding, thank you for sharing it. 🙂
You’re very kind 🙂
I love the 1st and last shots!
Thanks Livvy, despite being taken with my first digital camera the roof is one of my all time favourite photos 🙂
Really beautiful shots, Gilly.
Love your shots, especially the last one.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks Francine, one of my favourites from India!
Terrific gallery for From Above Gilly. Nice!
Thanks you are kind 🙂
Huh. I’m not going to ask HOW you managed to take these shots because I’m dizzy thinking about it. I know you are safe otherwise these lovely pictures wouldn’t have made their way here. You are not only BRAVE but you take unforgettable pictures.
Well only one was in a possibly scary place if you don’t like heights – the rainforest canopy in Ghana, which was very wobbly! I’m not frightened of heights thank goodness, just spiders and snakes when I don’t know if they are dangerous types!
I love them all, Gilly, but especially the waterfall and that rooftop with the ornament on top. 🙂
I should probably have said that its Victoria Falls 🙂
I always like your pictures. 🙂
Thanks honey 🙂
Ah yes, I have to agree – the first and last shots are excellent!
Thanks Marianne, the last is one of my favourites!
super waterfall … all beautiful and transporting 🙂
It’s Victoria Falls, a beautiful and incredible bodyof water!
My favourite is the shot of the falls.
Thanks Colline, it’s Vic Falls in Zimbabwe!
I like Bikaner …
It’s easy to take goods photos in India!
Lovely shots for the challenge, Gilly. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia and also for your lovely visits,it means a lot 🙂
Nicely from above Gilly. I haven’t been by in a while so am off to catch up on your life. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
Thanks for visiting Veronica, you have a fun weekend too 🙂
Stunning selection here Gilly!
Thanks for your loveliness Julia!
Great shots, Gilly
Celestine welcome, I hope all is well!
What a beautiful collection, it has left me feeling a little dizzy 🙂
Thanks honey, but I don’t believe you’re bothered by heights 😉
The first is Victoria falls isn’t it? Yes that and the spectacular shot of Bikaner are the stars for sure. I am torn between going to Africa later this year or visiting some domestic destinations Gilly.. Wish i could do both.
Where would you choose in Africa Madhu? East for wildlife, West for people and North for culture. But I highly recommend Ghana for a bit of everything and really wonderful people!
Haven’t thought beyond the wildlife Gilly. Shall certainly consider Ghana. Not sure if we can make it this year though.
Excellent shots, Gilly!
Oh bless you Janet 🙂
Did you walk across the Kukum foot bridge!!!! ???
It’s a canopy walk in Kakum national park, Ghana, about 40 metres high! It’s just an hour or so north of Cape coast.
Its wonderful.I would love to walk this!
Spectacular pictures. Nice to view glimpses of Ghana. Thanks 🙂
Spectacular Gallery of images from ‘above’, Gilly!
What a beautiful gallery! The top of that dome looks like it should be the model for a sugar bowl lid!
Beautiful!. A dream place to be. Happy Mother’s Day my friend.
Thanks for reading and your inspiring comments.
