Commonwealth Games marks one year to go with photographic countdown
July 23 2013
This saw a 16ft inflatable number one raised in Glen Etive, scene of Skyfall’s mist shrouded climactic scenes, and other famous landmarks, such as the Forth Railway Bridge which is currently subject of a World Heritage bid.
A total of nine portraits were captured in all each reflecting natural beauty, historic landmarks or sporting venues directly connected to the Games.
These include the shoreline at Carnoustie, Angus, setting off the shooting competition; RRS Discovery, Dundee; Calton Hill, Edinburgh; SSE Hydro, Glasgow; Loch Lomond, St Andrews and Stirling Castle.
Each of these images will be shared across all 71 nations and territories participating in the event to build anticipation.
Lord Smith of Kelvin, chairman of Glasgow 2014, said of the occasion: “Today marks an important moment in the journey towards the biggest sporting and cultural festival Glasgow and Scotland has ever hosted.
“With one year to go, the Organising Committee is making great strides towards our ultimate goal of delivering an outstanding Games for the athletes of the Commonwealth.
“I’m delighted to see how the city and the nation are getting set to welcome the world to enjoy our landscape, our friendship and truly great international sport.”
