Straight Up

From Below


This is one of many cell towers in Haninge. They are all equally ugly. But if you stand at the bottom of the tower looking up at the sky it gets a bit better. I have taken a similar photo before with a point and shoot but this was shot with the new Canon.

Skywatch Friday.

You're right Steffe, this perspective against the blue and white sky, takes it to a whole new level. Great shot.

An awesome, dizzy kind of perspective! Wonderful shot!

Bob Crowe said...

Very cool image, complex shapes leading the eye toward heaven. I don't think there are any cellular telephone towers in heaven itself.

Jack said...

A magnificent image for one so simple.

ladyfi said...

Very creative and such a wonderful perspective with all those lines.

Very effective.

Julie said...

Yep. Like this heapa, Steffe. What sort of Canon did you invest in, and what sort of lenses?

Peter said...

Perhaps they could put the tower underground?

Great shot again Steffe. Its nice to take a unusual corner for photographing.

Steffe said...

Thanks all.

I bough a Canon 550 Julie.

No money to spend on lenses at the moment, so I am using the EFS 18-55.

did you get dizzy looking up?

Rae Walter said...

Great perspective, fabulous shot Steffe.

JM said...

Love this kind of shot. This one is perfect.

Great eye and great capture with your new Canon. The clouds help make this and interesting shot. I can't help but think about all the data and $$$ that goes up that white hole in the sky.

What a cool shot! Love the angle and the beautiful sky.

Jacob said...

New Canon? Fantastic. I've always used Nikons but have a Canon S95 (P&S) and am thinking of a Canon DSLR for my next camera...

I think you've done what can be done with a cell tower...and you've done it well.

Straight up and then some.
