A diptych. The image on the left is north side of the tower, the image on the right is on the south side. I took this set while I was actually homeless, living in the back of my car in 2010.

I wasn't even a quarter way up this tower. These are enormous and they're studded across Australia. I went no higher because I was concerned about the repeaters and radiation burns.

The sounds they make sound very space-like and dreamy, and the red colour of the ground is the flashing beacons reflecting off the ground.
