We love maps.

We love imagery.

We love work breaks.

We hope you like them as well!

It’s winter and it might be a bit dreary outside but that should not stop you from taking a nice break from your workday. Before you head out on that break, check out this image of the 2016 Brest’s International Maritime Festival collected by WorldView-2 on July 17, 2016. This WorldView-2 image was collected at a very high tilt (or off-nadir) so it seems as though you are looking at the boating festival from a bird’s eye view. The Brest Festival is held once every four years in the French city of Brest. The festival started in 1980 when several local sailors came together to celebrate the long heritage of sailing ships. Today, Brest’s has grown into one of the largest celebrations of maritime heritage – you can read more about the festival here!

Have a great rest of your workday!
