I think a lot of people couldn't tell the size of this structure from my last picture. Click here to view first picture
Here's a picture that should show the how big this thing is.
Height: 20 meters
Weight: 15 tonnes
Light bulbs: 528
It took 5 days to set it up. What a treat!!
This festival takes place in Aomori (the northern tip of Japan - right before Hokkaido)during the first week of August.

Wow, this is huge. I like the inclusion of people to give the picture scale.

That's huge! Besides that, overall it's a very pleasing shot. The background is busy, but all the pieces seem to fall right into place to highlight the structure. Of course the people at left provide scale which is important. The hues are quite vivid, nice one!
