"Evening at the Eiffel Tower"
by Paul Roark

The Eiffel Tower in the evening is even better than in daylight. In addition to the view and lighting of the Tower, the activity at the base is quite a celebration.

This image, like many of my more recent ones, is composed of multiple frames. With 86 million pixels of visual information, we are able to study some details of Gustave Eiffel's 1889 structure, which is more impressive than I expected. Ironically, many in Paris thought the Tower was too industrial and ugly. They tried to stop it from being built and then wanted it removed after the World's Fair, for which it was built.
