Far away across the fields

Nine miles away from these fields rises the Warsaw skyline. Where once but one tower would be visible - Stalin's gift to the people of Warsaw, the Palace of Culture - today, several skyscrapers challenge its dominance. From right to left: Palace of Culture, Marriott Hotel (LIM Centrum), Elektrim Tower, Intercontinental Hotel and Warsaw Financial Center. These five skyscrapers are only 800 yards apart.

Above: the same five towers photographed at 5:20 am from the 26th floor of the Novotel Centrum. From right to left: Palace of Culture, Intercontinental Hotel, Warsaw Financial Center; First left: Elektrim Tower, second left: Marriott Hotel

I could not resist this tight crop on the Palace of Culture and the Interconti and WFC behind. Just like out of Koyaanisqatsi!

The one behind Interconti is Rondo 1.
All the best!
