Photo of the Day (8.9.09)

Imagine renting a seaside studio in the South of France. Each morning, you throw open the windows of your balcony to a jaw-dropping view of the seaside village below, punctuated by tiny sailboats and the luminous yellow-orange glow of the early morning sun. If this was your vision, it’s been fulfilled by Flickr user Michael Joseph Goldst …etc. My favorite element of this image is the sunlight – that surreal fiery orange color gives everything a magic glow.

Have any photos of the South of France? Or maybe just from South Florida? Why not add them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.

Photo of the Day (3-26-08)

The lines, shapes and layers of this shot remind me a bit of a tiny wooden train set my brother received once as a child. It came in a fine mesh gold bag that tied at the top. Along with the train came buildings and simple wooden trees with a shape similar to these. These trees, the real ones, are so perfect and sculpted-looking. There’s promise in the fields…a sense of waiting for the lushness that will set in once spring’s magic happens.

This shot of the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape by Luke Robinson was posted at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool. How is the beginning of spring looking where you are? We’d love to see your shots for a chance at Photo of the Day. Post them in our Gadling group.
