The Spire of Dublin

It is the controversial Dublin's needle taken directly from its base. Looking at its entire 120 m height from this point is really somehow strange/unpleasant experience. It looks as if it wasn't straight up, but leaning over you and as if it was going to fall down right on where you're standing. But anyway it's a great thing in Dublin, where there are no other high rise structures and since you can see it almost from every point of the city, it quite helps with orientation. of course there is just ONE spire in reality :-)

Oh boy...bad weather on its way to get you... but, in order to get such colours and moods on the sky it's worthwhile to be wet (very wet, I suppose :D)
