City lights (best larger)
Looking towards Torchal mountain from Milad Tower at night, Tehran, Iran. Note the silhouette of the mountains in the background.
It was very windy at the top of the tower and even with a good tripod it was very difficult to keep the camera 100% steady in such a tall building since the building itself moved with the wind. I braced the tripod against the building structure in the lee of the wind and shot between gusts, but it still required several shots to get it tack sharp.
