BCP063 - Calgary Tower.
Wow. My first terrain 8.5.....
Let me start out by saying that yes, I am afraid of heights. I don't like going into the tower at the best of times, but lemme tell you, trying to see the cap was an all-consuming deal for me.
"Why not go to the Calgary Tower today?" Neko asks. I think "sure, there's a cap there that we can get," and agree.
I carefully pack my camera bag with the essential lenses, etc. that would be required to take pictures through walls in order to use my 200mm zoom lens to get a photo of the cap. (I also packed some normal lenses, just to ensure that I could get some normal photos, too.)
When we got up to the top, I was greeted by an unwelcome sight about which I had forgotten: the glass floor.
Did I mention that I was afraid of heights?
So, after taking a look down to see how far it is (see attached photo) and after the cat walked out onto the glass floor (see attached photo), I whipped out my x-ray lens to take a photo of the cap through the roof of the Tower. (see attached photo.)
What I did NOT anticipate was that my xray technique would work QUITE so well. Although I can make out the numbers on the original photo (which I will forthwith email to the cache owner), alas, when it uploads, well, you can see what happened.
Thanks for the physics lesson, OFTH! I'm happy to finally log this one!
