Very interesting image, Amelia - muted silver and gold and grids and curves - I hope you used the elevator! Hugs (O:

If I climbed on foot I would not lose, an opportunity to view this magnificent. Bellissima Amelia I like it. Ciao, vittorio

Dear Greetje, good morning to you. We enjoyed climbing up and down the stairs as opposed to using the lift - I don't like elevators :)

Groetjes van Amelia

Thanks dear Theolfa. Most folks take the lift and miss this marvellous view entirely :))

I held on to the camera very tightly though ;)

Cheers, Amelia

Dear Lutz, yes - it is inside the Astronomical Clock Tower. I wonder if it was in place when you visited the city? It was far better to take the stairs - the photo opportunities were infinitely superior ;))

... no Amelia, we didn't have the Opportunity to visit the clock tower back then, so I do not know, whether there was e lift or not. Things were different then ;-)

Amelia Royan on October 20, 2010

I doubt that the lift system would have been in place then, but I'm sure that the staircase was - for upkeep of the clock. It is a pity that this one isn't selected for GE. Most people take the lift, and all the photos seem to be of the outside :)
