    Hi Rob
    awesome high rise shot.
    we have an almost perfect duplicate of this building downtown in Vancouver.

    I like the way the building goes inward, like steps for a huge giant to climb up the tower :)

    the colors and reflections are just how you want them to be.
    sweet shot in this close up format
    cheers

    Hi Ian
    now this is a pretty darn cool shot.
    glad you decided to pull over and capture this one.
    funny how most people dont even know these reflection shots exist to be taken.

    its neat how the vertical lines do downward on an angle, thats a lucky surprise. and all the activity on the street level is perfectly transferred on the glass...well seen.
    cheers

    Hi Ourania
    hmmm...can you count all the rectangles here?
    I would guess there are at least 20 or so.
    surprising to see a photo from here where the lighting is so dim, or perhaps you did that in post processing?
    but not to worry, its still a fine look into the town. We have an abandoned type of building on the far left, and a sweet rooftop restaurant on the top in the middle. I'd eat there for sure, it must have sweet views overlooking the water. interesting pov from the boat

    Hi Bev
    I bet this place is quiet! Looks like its just you and a few stones :)

    Oh what i'd pay to see this castle in its Heyday as you say.
    I like how you included the fg features, thats something I can learn from...when I walked up on these abandoned Castles i tend to step infront of the fences and such. I can see the benefit of leaving them in the scene too.

    rustic, even romantic. looks great to me.
    I'll try to post a new photo tonight or tomorrow.
    cheers

    Hi Jean Claude
    Looks like we were in Edinburgh at almost the same time, but not quite.

    how long did you stay here? looks like you had wonderful weather on this day, was it like this everyday for you?

    a very pretty and colorful presentation from the city, you would never know this is Edinburgh. excellent choice to show us this area.
    cheers

    Hi Noel
    good to see a new photo from ya!
    so you've been travelling around your country lately i see, more photos to come i take it?

    we didn't make it to Slieve League, we wanted to, we planned on it...but by luck when we got to this area of the country it was rain rain rain and strong winds...nothing at all like the day you had. So with time being really important, we decided to move on to another area. Too bad, we really wanted to see this.

    at least we get to see it in your gallery now, so thats ok too! look at the clouds you got! Lucky man! and I would have certainly walked the 2 km to get here, i bet there's good views to enjoy as well.

    love the clouds, love the view, love the rocks...alot to see here in this bright shot.
    cheers

    Hi Philippe
    I will never get tired of seeing this building, keep posting it and i"ll keep viewing it :)

    the rounded turret has to be the main focal point in my opinion and it looks great, especially with that shine on it.
    strong visual impact of this old beauty

    Hi Gert
    I think most large cities around the world in most countries have their areas which were once the down and dirty area, but have been spruced up and are now the trendy place to be area.

    Vancouver certainly has theirs too, just as we probably have here in your city/country.

    I like it when cities turn large abandoned wharehouses into appartments - thats quite common in NYC, and I think Noel has posted photos from Dublin with the same idea.

    your photo reminds me of a 1970's photo or scene because of the funky oranges and pinks. vibrant, loud and ALIVE!
    fun local shot

    Hi John
    first of all, I'll try messaging Lars on Facebook for Brenda, that should work eventually, thanks!

    Even though I had a guide book, I must not have been paying close attention because I was so surprised to see this structure. There was that moment of confusion where I thought I was in Greece or Tunisia or Turkey or Italy lol.

    wow!!!!!!! I just finished reading your note. How come I had no idea of this structures history - thats quite the incredible story. Hard to believe its STILL not constructed.

    I think you and I should get the ball rolling again. I'll donate $1 which is about 0.65 cents after conversion to Euros, you can donate 1 Euro...we have a long way to go!

    Awesome post. Now that I know its history, its making me want to post it as well. I also have that same guy taking a selfie on the far left side of the stone.
    crisp, clear, bright.

    cheers

    Hi Ryszard
    as soon as I looked at your gallery page I knew I'd like this one right away.
    you couldn't have asked for better lighting conditions, and the exposure settings are spot on.
    everything about this scene is just about perfect.
    lovely piece of architecture set back into the scene with an attractive blue sky to set the mood. awesome

    Hi Lars
    so this is what Boston looks like :)
    for some reason we don't get to see alot of Boston city views or panoramics on TE.

    seems like Brown is the city planners favorite color too :)
    always a welcome sight to see new city scapes like this, looks great.

    PS
    Brenda (worldcitizen) is trying to get a hold of you to plan a TE meeting in NYC. you can message me on Facebook, and i'll send you her email address

    Hi Jean
    its really important that you included that little sailboat on the far left side, otherwise it would have been alot of dead space over there.

    gotta love that blue though right? interesting pieces of landscape scattered in the water. nice shot
