A Field Trip to the Dingle (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

The ten story high Memorial Tower was built at the Dingle to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of representative government in Nova Scotia, in 1758.

At the heart of the tower is a lovely iron stairway; with so many lines, curves and different plains, it was hard to know where to begin with the structure, but once I began looking at it through my ultra wide 17mm tilt-shift lens, everything came together.

At the end of a field trip this morning, I spent 40 minutes photographing an iron stairway; essentially I started at the bottom and worked my way up. By the end, I had my camera leaning out over the stairwell (the joy of having a good tripod) pointing almost straight down; this, combined with pushing things a little with my 17mm tilt-shift lens, gave me a number of really pleasing images.
