A very beautiful street scene you have captured here, leading us brilliantly up to that magnificent tower. The light is soft and suits the image really well, while the buildings in the foreground give a great cloying sense of an urban space. Nicely seen, and thanks for sharing. Welcome to Trekearth!
All the best
