A sunset capture of Broadway tower was on my list for quite a while. The day before we had some very promising clouds in the afternoon but when I got in my car, driving towards north east, I only saw a black storm front coming towards me. The conditions next day were better but unfortunately without the wonderful clouds. In return for the suboptimal conditions I met two other photographers and it was quite funny when we were walking around the tower, trying not to get in each others photos ;)
This is the Broadway bridge over the Arkansas river in Wichita, Kansas. I used the stock Iphone 5 camera , then used Handy Photo for basic editing , then Distressed FX for added texture. I felt it was still missing something. Lo Mob gave it a look and feel that seemed to match the retro design of the bridge.

The structure here is the Woolworth Building right on Broadway in Lower Manhattan next to City Hall Park. On this particular day the skies were so very wonderful at least for most of the day. 'although they didn't come out as wonderful as I'd hoped in this photograph (a tad over-exposed?).
As luck would have it, within minutes after this shot the skies became seriously gloomy and the weather had made a full 180 degree turn with muggy, humid air and worse.
with a bit of flare… NB14426 - Happy Flare Fridays!

Broadway Tower is a folly located near the village of Broadway, in Worcestershire. There are displays on the Tower’s history on three floors, a roof viewing platform and the Tower Shop..The Tower is one of England's outstanding viewpoints. At 1024 feet (312m) above sea level, it is the second highest point on the Cotswold escarpment. There are unrivalled views over a 62 mile radius and as many as 16 Counties can be seen on a clear day. Designed by James Wyatt in 1794 to resemble a mock castle, and built for Lady Coventry in 1799, the tower was built on a "beacon" hill, where beacons were lit on special occasions. Over the years, the tower was home to the printing press of Sir Thomas Phillipps, and it served as a country retreat for artists including William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Today, the tower is a tourist attraction

Broadway Tower is a folly located on Broadway Hill, A44 between Evesham and Moreton-in-Marsh, one mile (1.6 km) south-east of the village of Broadway, Worcestershire, England at the second highest point of the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. Broadway Tower's base is 1,024 feet (312 metres) above sea level. The tower itself stands 55 feet (17 metres) high. Today, it is a tourist attraction with various exhibitions.
The "Saxon" tower was designed by James Wyatt in 1794 to resemble a mock castle, and built for Lady Coventry in 1799. The tower was built on a "beacon" hill, where beacons were lit on special occasions. Lady Coventry wondered if a beacon on this hill could be seen from her house in Worcester - approximately 22 miles (35 km) away - and sponsored the construction of the folly to find out. The beacon could be seen clearly.
Over the years, the tower was home to the printing press of Sir Thomas Phillipps, and served as a country retreat for artists including William Morris.
The tower is on the Cotswold Way; it is reached by following the Cotswold Way from the A44 road at Fish Hill, or by a steep climb out of Broadway village.

Interesting fact: After being used for many purposes, during the Cold War in the late 1950s the role of Broadway Tower was changed to monitor nuclear fallout in England.
An underground bunker was built 50 yards from the Tower. Manned continuously from 1961 and designated as a master post, the Nuclear Bunker was one of the last bunkers constructed of its kind and, although officially stood down in 1991, the bunker is now one of the few remaining fully equipped facilities in England.
