Solar Portal, Bath Abbey and Mamaia

Solar Portal :- This is one of the many mysterious metal doors set into the wall of the undercliff walk that runs along the foot of the cliffs in Brighton, England. I have a feeling that they are nothing more than service doors to waterworks but having never seen on open I cannot be sure. This one is by the beach near the village of Rottingdean and was shot around sunset fot eh door was glowing gold. The shadows of the beach railings can also be seen cast against the wall.

Bath Abbey :- A view of the southern side of Bath Abbey in the City of Bath in Somerset. The Abbey was originally founded in the 7th Century but was was reorganised in the 10th century and then rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries. The Grade I listed building is famous for its fan vaulting and also for its sculptures of two stone ladders depicting angels climbing up towards heaven.

Mamaia :- Shot from the shores of the Black Sea, this is a view of the Mamaia skyline which is a district of ConstanČ›a in Romania. Mamaia is only 8 km (5.0 mi) in length and 300 m (328 yards) in width and yet it is regarded to be Romania's most popular resort. This thin strip of land runs between the gargantuan Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol, a large lagoon that's over 20 km² and reaches depths of depth of 18 m.
