London: sea of poppies surrounding the Tower of London
Commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War, a total of 888,246 ceramic poppies have been installed around the Tower of London - one for each life that was lost during the conflict. From this northwest corner, we can see that they are appearing to pour from one of the Tower's windows.
