Photographer's Note

This is a view of the Gold Coast, with the new Q1 tower (the tallest skyscraper in the photo)
The Q1 (Queensland Number One) is the world's tallest residential tower on the Gold Coast at 323m tall and 80 storeys high. It is also the 20th tallest building in the world.
There has been a level of controversy lately surrounding whether the tower's spire should be counted in the total height. If the spire is not included in the official height, then Melbourne's Eureka Tower would be the taller.
The Q1 contains a 2 storey observation deck with room for 400 people. It also has a ten storey tropical sky-garden, illuminated at night.
The Q1 has Australia's fastest lifts.
This photo was taken from Surfers Paradise Beach at night just before the rain started.
