Sky Tower

Auckland NZ's Sky Tower is the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere, but even so it can be difficult to shoot up close because of the mass of tall blocks erupting around it. After some judicious recon, I found this spot that not only affords a relatively uninterrupted view, but also puts it in contrast to the venerable older St Patricks Cathedral.

The RF 24-105 f/4 is a lens I rarely use, but given the low light and wide FoC required, I went with that. Hand-held in available light.
