Blue sky thinking

A couple of weeks ago I saw an item on our local television news about a council which had banned daft management speak terms like ??blue sky thinking??. That particular term had been replaced with the word ??thinking?? instead! As I walked around Gunwharf Quays this morning under a deep blue sky this came to mind as being a good title for today??s photos. I also decided to break a few supposed photographic rules as I shot these images ?? the first has a bit of flare from the sun and I decided the second one just needed the bullseye approach to framing, even if that??s not a recommended compositional tool!

The sky was almost this blue althoughthis shot did have a little help from my polarising filter!

A friend of mine was here last weekend - looks worth the trip down there to have a look. I esp like the angle in #2

Very cool! Nice contrast in the white structure against the blue sky!

Although I find the photos beautiful, I have no idea what it is.
Is it maybe a building? ;)
