Mixing up our usual IOTD format, today we’ll be highlighting several great images. Plus, it’s Friday – we’ve had lots of great work submitted in the past few weeks and we want to show off as much as we can before we head out to enjoy the summer sun this weekend!

As the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing begin, let’s help celebrate! We have some awesome images of Beijing, and many fantastic images of athletes in action.

Beijing is a beautiful and fascinating city, which is sure to provide a dramatic backdrop for the excitement and passion of the games.

Bill Perry has been submitting some fantastic shots of historic Beijing over the last week. Take a look at his excellent work:

Another recent image of Beijing that caught my eye, comes this time from anjela_buch. Anjela’s shot of the Temple of Heaven shows off amazing saturated colors, deep contrast and a beautiful sky.

While Beijing provides an amazing backdrop – the real action at the games is sure to be in the pool, on the track, or in packed venues all over the metropolis. Our contributors have submitted some awesome images of athletes in action. Here are just a few:

TLF Design’s overhead shot of a swimmer beneath the water shows off the beauty of an athlete’s form and the cool blue hues of the pool.
