At IATEFL 2015 I learnt about The role of the image in materials design from Ceri Jones and Ben Goldstein. One of the sources they recommended following was Unsplash, who send out a selection of photos to your email every week, all of which are available under a Creative Commons 0 license, meaning they can be used for free without requesting permission first. The photos are always beautiful, and I found this one particularly striking.

What would you do with this image in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context it is used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

You might also like to extend it by using the ELTpics Windows and Doors or Urban collections.
