A belluva view!



The Bell Tower, a finalist in the tourism awards, (category1, major tourist attraction and cat.6, cultural tourism) sponsored by the National Trust of WA was also open as part of Perth Heritage Days 2016 last weekend and was free to visitors without height issues, of which there were many as you can see above :) I took these shots with my long lens from....


... the other side of the harbour! It's not that long ago since I took in the view from atop the bell tower and as Elizabeth Quay progresses I will go up again and take more shots.. no need to step out of my comfort zone (acrophobia) too often right :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe...

  5. Oh my, I think I would have trouble going up there to take photos. That looks just a bit to open for me and my acrophobia. Gorgeous photos! Your long lens does an outstanding job.

  6. I'd be with you on the other side of the harbor, Grace! I've never gone up our CN Tower.

  7. Very intriguing architecturally. But, like you, I will stay on the ground and take photos!

  8. Not having a good head for heights ...
    I can appreciate your pictures from ground level - or perhaps seat level, whilst sitting at my computer!

    All the best Jan

  9. Wow! that is some lens. If I want a closeup shot like that I have to walk closer. Looking forward to seeing the views from the bell tower. BTW, love your post name. Made me smile.

  12. I seem to remember it was quite expensive to go up in the tower. It should at least be affordable for families with children. Sails are going up!

  13. When I visited a few years ago they let me ring the bells which was a great experience.

  19. A great view for interesting photos is sometimes worth a bit of fear.

  20. A great view from your lenses, but the views from above are worth the fear.

  21. So glad you have that great lens and that you showed us the pictures because I'm not going up that tower anytime soon. ;)

  22. I must admit, I would be photographing the bell tower from solid ground. But it is a fascinating structure.
