Default First attempt

Here is one to keep my place, maybe something else later. I posted this image earlier in another thread.

Some great shots already! Since I am literal-minded, will post a fire tower not too far from my home, on Holston Mountain. The first image is the one for the contest. Will also post a shot of the view from the tower, and a more "traditional" view of the tower.

Here is the view from Holston Mt Tower, and how the tower looks as you approach it from the old fire road: (These are not for the contest, just for your interest...)

This is a historic landmark water tower in an overcrowded seaside community near Seal Beach, California. Property values are very high, and no homesites are available. The tower was rotting away and so was sold to be rebuilt as a (very expensive) home. Access is by elevator inside the steelwork. There is little sun near the coast right now - the fog and low clouds locally known as "June Gloom" are a little early this year, so the lighting is a bit flat.

June Gloom isn't early - this is Grey May!

An interesting structure, I like the way they converted it.

I spent today taking pictures of some really big trees, trying to capture one good enough for this month's challenge. I don't think I did all that well, and in fact, the picture I took of a really BIG tree was a nice picture, but didn't say "tall" to me. The pictures I took of smaller, less noble trees said "tall" much better. So instead of posting a picture of the tree that has the biggest volume in the world, I'll enter this picture.

I took it to show the fire scars on the trunk. Most of these trees have been marked by fire but they are still alive and doing well.

I've changed my mind - I'll post a different tall tree picture.

So here's another tall tree picture. For a size comparison, look at the people who are walking by it.

Cool pic Pen,
probably one of the few if not the only home in Ca where you can rent out advertisement space to help pay off the mortgage!
