This was taken in Santiago, Chile, at the same place Walk Alone was captured. The building is in Santa Lucia Park, in the heart of Santiago city. It is built on a hill, with steep pathways and stairs leading up to a 360 degree incredible viewpoint of the Andes Mountains which surround Santiago.

This is my first attempt at playing with textures. The original photo below, is one I have always wanted to use, never did due to the lens flare at the top of the shot.

Added a few layers of texture and faded out most of the colour. I first thought of the Hanging Gardens Of Babylon when I finished this one.
