Another View of the City June 6, 2017 / paul View from Mount Albert Auckland seen from a vantage point on the northern side of Mount Albert. City, Mount Albert Previous post Strong Next post Frogparking 3 Comments William Kendall June 7, 2017 at 9:05 am Great perspective! Grace June 10, 2017 at 5:11 am I didn’t realise Auckland was such a big city Paul, what is the tall thin structure centre of the shot? paul June 10, 2017 at 5:07 pm Well yes, Grace, Auckland is reasonably big with a population of just under 1.5 million, spread over a wide area. Interestingly, when I looked at this view I thought how small the inner city is, the centre rising up and the rest flattening out… Our sky tower with its 328 metres from ground level to top of mast boasts of being the tallest freestanding structure in the southern hemisphere and 23rd tallest tower in the world (Wikipedia).
