    I've been there and i've seen a lot of pictures of Skytree.
    Ok, don't ask me why but, maybe, this is my favourite one until now, Phil. This is the most interesting picture of Skytree for me. I love that gloss, that misty atmosphere and those shines and little lights above that nice background.
