Default From the Top

I work on the 26th floor of the EPCOR Tower (Utility Company) which got 28th floor. It is one of the tallest building in Edmonton and they gave us access to the top floor terrace for the first time ever.

So I went there with the EM-1 and the Rokinon 7.5mm Fisheye. There are some pictures from it:








Comments ???

That is so cool. Interesting shots, the last one gave me a hint of vertigo just looking at it. LOL

Do you ever see the clouds floating below you when you are at work?

They all put a big smile on my face. You've really got your process down well. The 2nd one looks like it has a little color in the sky. It might be fun to balance out the EPCOR building with about the same level of color leaving just the landscape B+W.

Nice work folob.

Gilles, those photos are really neat. You again show the Rokinon 7.5 versatility. Will you now be allowed ongoing access to the 28th?

No, it was a special event from the company I work for (EPCOR). They usually give us access in summer to the balcony (I know, an office bulding with balcony...) but never to the huge patio on top of the building. Also, that floor is basically the Executive floor...


However, I am planning an evening outing up there with my camera/photo club sometime in October ... before we have 3 feet of snow there.

We shall see !
