Great photo!

What a fabulous view of St. George's Square and the Gummer Bldg! Can Ryan give us the scoop on what equipment he used? And is Skyline giving crane rides to the public now that the work has slowed down? What a view...

Hey Leanne,

It was a fabulous view from the top of the crane. I shot that picture with a Nikon D300 and a fisheye lens. That lens gives nearly 180 degrees of vision in a single picture. The obvious drawback is the distortion it creates, but in certain scenarios it works well and can be the only way to show everything I want to show.

I sincerely doubt that Skyline would be giving public crane rides. While climbing the ladders to get up there wouldn't deter everyone, there are probably legal reasons they wouldn't want to do that.
