I have to admit, I got a bit jelly-knee’d while taking this shot. When looking through the lens of the camera, you lose your sense of depth perception. This picture takes me back every time!

This is from the observatory of the Calgary Tower, in the glass floor area. We stopped there for a night before heading to the mountains in Banff.

      • When I was in Paris I didn’t dare going all the way to the top of the Eiffel tower, which I still regret. Although I went to the top of the empire state building, it’s having nothing under my feet that really freaks me out! Like on your photo.

      • We went to the very top at night on a cold, rainy night. It was incredible because you were somewhat over the clouds. I will post a picture from up there soon. I swear you could see the curvature of the Earth!
