Hard to believe I'm looking more at the windows than at the view. I love the way you caught the light there. Who'd have thought that adding part of the tower would make a shot of this view even more interesting? :)

Nice starburst from the sun too Kevin

But J is right about the reflection in the glass... that is excellent.

Well done - Jethro

I know what you mean, Jeroen, but the whole sunrise thing was over with. I made one last walk around the platform before leaving and this scene was staring me in the face. This may be my fav from this trip.

Thanks a bunch, Jethro - I'm glad you like it. Now, as you can see this fire tower is accessible, unlike (ahem) others we've been to. And its only a 3/4 mile walk up the hill to get there.

I went to Brevard College and I hope you don't mind that I just made this image my desktop background! Beautiful shot!

Truth is, DrewClancy, I'm a bit sensitive to it. But thank you for having the courtesy to tell me. :)

I see that you've disabled all the right-click/save-as features on your website, so I might interpret that you might be sensitive to it as well.

Many of my Panoramio images are 'first drafts'. See the much improved, much cleaner, final image here.
