Nice shots, like the way the towers in thesecond shot give the feeling that they are trying to squeeze you.

Superb shots, Walter!

My retired pro photographer friend, who worked with me for 25 years in an electricity industry research centre, would have been very proud of them! Occasionally he had to take the corresponding downwards shots as well, when dangling from high parts of the structures, sometimes in wild and windy locations. Rather him than me, even though I rock-climbed for fun.

Note the "sharks teeth" on the lower girders in the 1st shot -- to discourage people from climbing on the towers. Signs to that effect are posted near by, along with warnings not to fly radio controlled planes or kites.
