Photographer's Note

I have seen dozens of photographs of the 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur on TrekEarth, but I have not seen any from this POV. This is an eye-level view of the double deck skybridge which links levels 41 and 42 at 170 metres above the ground. The main towers are on the far left and right of this picture, whilst the smaller tower on the right which ends at level 44 is one of the two side towers that are attached to the northern side of the Twin Towers. The gantry on top of the side tower is for cleaning the windows.

This picture also shows the power of a good 300mm lens on a digital camera. It was taken from level 41 of an apartment block 2.5km away (from exactly the same position as the two photographs that I posted yesterday and the day before were taken). The definition is excellent and this is still half the size of the original which I have reduced to 800 pixels in order to post here on TE. This was actually the first time I had seen people on the bridge. You can't see them from the ground, and you can't see them with the naked eye from where I took this photograph.
