Just a quick entry in the ‘apps that keep on giving’ category. I wrote a quick look post about a wonderful iPad app called The Guardian Eyewitness just a couple weeks ago. I hadn’t planned on mentioning the app again so soon – but I just can’t help but share a couple of the spectacular images the app has featured over the last few days.
Above is an amazing sequence of images showing a pilot parachuting to safety as his fighter jet crashes during a practice flight.
And here is a completely different sort of image that I find almost equally striking – which is described this way within the app:
Daybreak over Faulkland , near Frome in Somerset, the dawn sun creating a near-mystical scene as the mist hangs over lavender fields.
Truly stunning stuff. The Guardian Eyewitness is a very simple app, but packed full of these amazing images from all ‘round the world. I’d be hard-pressed to name a better free app.
