Standing out amidst a handful of recent cell phone photos, British photographer James Ellis has posted this fantastic high-resolution, ground-level photo looking straight down the main street of Hogsmeade Village at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure theme park:
Update (5/21/10): Ellis contacted me requesting that I remove his photo after Universal asked him to remove it from his site. I’ve left the links to his site intact in this post, though they are now broken. The image above has now been replaced with a photo of Hogwarts Castle that was released by Universal a few months ago.
Ellis writes that he took this picture during a recent tour of the new theme park addition.
With Hogwarts Castle towering in the background, this location is sure to become a favorite photo spot for tourists once the Wizarding World of Harry Potter officially opens on June 18. But until then, given Universal’s current photo restrictions during Wizarding World previews, we’re happy to find any clear pictures like this we can.
