It's all done with mirrors

By TrevBatWCC    
At the top end of the Royal Armouries building in Leeds is an octagonal tower which offers access to the different floor levels via a staircase, which is between the outer and this inner tower. Originally, on the ground floor you could stand in the centre and look up the inner tower, which is lined with swords and various other weapons. You can no longer stand in the centre, but to save visitors from having to crane their necks to look up, they installed an octagonal pyramid made with mirrors so when you're looking in the horizontal plane at the mirrors you get this view.
Apologies for lack of votes and comments, but been doing my bit at our Camera Club's exhibition in the local shopping centre this weekend, and also sorting and packing ready to go off to Whitby tomorrow morning for a few days!

Single Raw image processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

Wonderfully strange. I think I am looking up, but that vertical 'ladder' is deceiving...

It's actually in colour, Bill, but think it would make a good mono conversion... Smile
