This sunset skyline was shot in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, from the roof terrace of the Euromast restaurant. The restaurant is in a viewing tower built for the original Floriade gardening festival in 1960. The restaurant is circular at a height of about 100m – equivalent to a twenty story building.

(The Floriade gardening festivals have been repeated each decade since then. The second one was in 1972 and they have been held every ten years from then. I visited Floriade 2012 in Venlo the week before I took this photograph. However I wasn’t aware of the Floriade connection with this tower until after I had been there.)

At the time it was build the EuroMast was, at 101m, the tallest building in Rotterdam. It was designed, by the architect Hugh Maaskant, and constructed between 1958 and 1960. In 1970 it was almost doubled in height by the addition of a further 85m tower on top of the original – and hence regained the record for tallest building in Rotterdam.

The panorama takes in the view North from the River Nieuwe Maas, across some of the inner suburbs of Rotterdam.

I was in Rotterdam with a large bunch of photographers who had all been attending the annual PanoTools Meeting. We had been up on the roof earlier and came down for the first course of our dinner.

Then someone noticed the sunset reflecting on the windows of an apartment block in the city centre. Suddenly our dinners were forgotten as thirty photographers headed back to the roof!

This image was created by stitching together five telephoto shots using Hugin. The resulting panorama has a horizontal view of about 70° – the equivalent of having used a 24mm lens – but with four times the resolution/detail.

I had a 24-70mm zoom in my bag. So I have to admit that I really only shot it this way “because I could”.

The original full resolution version of this could be printed much larger than the largest print available on Red Bubble. If there is anyone out there who would like a print of this scene big enough to fill a wall – let me know because this image has plenty of resolution to spare!
