Skywalk at 474 Meters High

image In Shanghai, stands the current highest building of the world. The Shanghai World Financial Center is the tallest with 492 meters. This is 1614 feet high! Although there is one tower in Taipei higher, this is because of the long TV antenna on the roof!

On the 100th floor, there is the Skywalk, where you can walk from one side to the other over a floor of glass. This is a wonderful way to see the skyline of Shanghai. Last night we went to the tower to see the skyline at night, and especially to see if we can make some nice night shots from Shanghai, from 474 meters high!

The night shots were very difficult, as the windows were dirty from all the hands pressed against the window for the whole day, the light shining upwards were distorting the pictures. I managed to get some fun shots with the fisheye lens. For the rest, not all of the other pictures are really worth it to publish. Just a few are ok.

The rest of the pictures can be found on my flickr account.
