Standard de Liège from the sky

The home of the Standard de Liège seen from the sky. Unfortunately, so far this year their performances have been anything but sky high. Does it count as a Skywatch photo?

ArcelorMittal from the sky

One of the ArcelorMittal steel foundries in the Liège area seen from above. It looks even more chaotic than from ground level. These factories are the last vestiges of a previously vibrant heavy industry and their future is pretty uncertain.

Me in the sky

If you zoom into the centre of the photo, you will see a tiny airplane silhouetted against the clouds. I'm in there! Good excuse for a Skywatch.

Liège from the sky

For my birthday I was offered a flight in a light aircraft over Liège. I took plenty of photos that I will be posting over the next few days. My camera is not suited to this type of photography and the light conditions were not ideal (not to mention the shot stability) but I hope that you will like some of them. I'll start with a couple of shots of the city centre and Outremeuse. All the photos are taken from an altitude of around 2000ft (610m).

The coming of the storm

The photos are a couple of weeks late but makes a nice Skywatch!

Open air ants

An open air inflatable sculpture exhibition has been running in the city throughout the summer. This is the least ugly piece, it reflects the light quite nicely. Pity about the ants.
