Seagulls on the beach of Gold Coast, Australia, with skyscrapers
There is a flock of seagulls on the beach in an early morning. The water surface is so quiet that the sky, buildings, as well as the seagulls are reflected on the water surface. Some people are seen on the sand area.

Europe at night
Europe at night, satellite image. North is towards top left. Yellow lights mark the major cities. The Mediterranean coast is densely populated, as is the mainland of Britain. Atlantic islands (lower left) include the Canary Islands off the African coast. Dark areas include the Atlantic Ocean, the deserts of North Africa, and the Mediterranean Sea. Israel and the Nile are lit up (lower right). Some of the capital cities clearly seen are Rome, London, Paris and Madrid. Scandinavia, Russia and Eastern Europe have sparse or rural populations. It is late at night and dawn, a few hours away, is breaking in western Asia and the Middle East.
