    Calgary . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .Glass Floor at the Calgary Tower "At 1228 metres above sea level, the Calgary Tower is home to the highest 360° observation deck in the world and is your gateway to Calgary’s art, culture, entertainment, and nightlife" - Calgary Tower. It was strange the feeling that come over the body when you go to walk on this see-through observation deck. I knew it would be safe, but my body still had a flutter, as if saying "errr, what are you doing?!?!?". Image shot during my February 2010 trip to Calgary, Canada. Taken in central Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A view from the Calgary Tower's famous observation deck at 1228 metres above sea level - LOOKING DOWN from the glass floor! Taken with Panasonic Lumix G1 with 14-45mm lens. Processing carried out in CS5 and Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro. Much, much better when viewed in large.
