Tower

It's been a year since the Tokyo Skytree was opened to the public. I think I've been around the area 4-5 times already but never got the chance to be at the top of the tower. For everyone's information, Tokyo Skytree is tallest tower / structure in Japan.

What a luscious structure in the heart of Tokyo! 
Tokyo Skytree (東京スカイツリー Tōkyō Sukaitsurī) is a broadcasting, restaurant, and observation tower in Sumida, Tokyo, Japan. It became the tallest structure in Japan in 2010[2] and reached its full height of 634.0 metres (2,080 ft) in March 2011, making it the tallest tower in the world, displacing the Canton Tower, and the second tallest structure in the world after Burj Khalifa (829.8 m/2,722 ft). more here

Last month, I and some my friends spent our day gazing at the the skytree. Well, it's a Sunday and we've got nothing to do. The above photo is a collection of the photos of skytree at mid afternoon, sunset, dawn, evening. My tribute  of sort to this amazing structure. 

It's birthday (completion) maybe on February 29 but I still prefer May 22 as its birthday. The day when the people in Japan got the chance to embrace the Tokyo Skytree.

  1. sharp and vibrant colors of the sky and the skytree here, and to think that these were all handheld shots. but the thing that i liked in these photos was the clouds, very dramatic and dynamic, they were like moving in your photos.

    sorry for my grammar, english is not may native tongue.

  2. The visual effect of the sky in each of the pictures was stunning. At that height my guess the airport is not close by!
