Towering above


I was looking through some photos from a few years ago, and came across some of Black Mountain Tower. The section with the windows is the enclosed viewing galleries, with the open galleries above. It's very exposed up there (about 60 metres up from the base of the tower), and can be quite cold and windy even when it's mild at ground level.

The tower is primarily a telecommunications tower, and has a whole list of antennas and transmitters, as well as a small museum area at the bottom, and a restaurant and cafe in the viewing galleries.
