Pic(k) of the week 8: Aerial Photography from Tokyo Skytree

Aerial photography, has always been one of favourite genres of photography. While I generally shoot this from an aircraft, occasionally  one can do some interesting Aerial photography from a high-rise building as well.

Such was the case mid-January, when I was up on the Tokyo Skytree; an observatory and broadcasting tower in the Sumida district. With its 634m, the Skytree is the Worlds second largest tower, after the Burj Khalifa (829m) in Dubai. Even though there are no open spaces like on the Burj Khalifa observation decks, the space is very well thought off with sloping glass surfaces that pretty much completely eliminate reflections.

I was especially attracted by the shadow of the tower that was projected on the city below.
