Sky Tower

I was in Auckland a while ago and took this photo of the quintessential Auckland icon, the Sky Tower. It's frigtening to imagine, but people - stupid people - absail down this structure.

Absail? Climb? Descend? Great shot!

What a great picture!

Been up there to the revolving restaurant, all good except it can be a bit disorientating finding the exit or toilets which of course have all moved since you sat down! :-)

Cheers

Nice composition. It does show the tower is really tall.

The tower fascinates me, but there's no way that you'll find me at its top. I don't have a head for heights.

Another frightening thing is that structures such as this will be given favourable treatment when they feature in future books on architectural history. I hasten to add that this comment is not to denigrate the photo or the photographer, whose beautiful artistry is well represented in this website.
