Urban landscapes: the soaring tower


When it was topped off in 1976, the tower’s 1,815-foot height made it the world’s tallest freestanding structure. And it kept that record for 32 years. I combined it with the wonderful, modern architecture of the nearby aquarium, a truly marvelous $130 million tourist attraction that opened in 2013.
The only significant colour in this scene was the blue sky, so I went monotone to increase the drama. (Here’s the scene, horizontally, in colour: https://wp.me/p2ccTX-rC.)
