A wonderful photograph with night trails of vehicles roaming around Aukland Sky Tower of New Zealand. Amazing lighting on Sky Tower make this photograph more beautiful and adds more glow to the light trails of cars moving in all possible directions...
The Sky Tower is actually a telecommunications tower located on the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets in the Auckland CBD, Auckland City, New Zealand. It's also an observatory of New Zealand.
A Closer look to Sky Towers show some sparkling offices in the middle of it and some of us debating about it's being an office or a sort of party lounge in Sky Tower building... After check Wikipedia, we got to know that it's a revolving restaurant. Imagine yourself sitting in this restaurant and looking at the other places around this tower. At the same time I wish that there is no fog like in Delhi, India... Long time back we visited one of the revolving restaurant in Delhi and it was foggy day. It seems that restaurant gives some amazing views of President's house, Connaught Place, Birla Temple, India Gate and other important places of Delhi.
The SKY Tower is Auckland's primary FM radio transmitter and its considered as second major terrestrial television transmitter (after Waiatarua in the Waitakere Ranges to the west). It hosts total of twenty-three FM radio stations, two VHF analogue television channels, and three digital terrestrial television multiplexes broadcast from the tower.The analogue television channels will switch off in the early hours of Sunday 1 December 2013 as part of New Zealand's digital television transition.Check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sky_Tower to know more about Sky Tower in Aukland, New Zealand !!!
Height of Sky tower is approximately 330 metres and it's considered as tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere. Due to its shape and height, especially when compared to the next tallest structures, it has become an iconic structure in Auckland's skyline.

Apart from restaurants, it also talks about activities like Sky jump and Sky Walk. Not sure if these activities are always provided or there are some special occasions for the same. It must be a wonderful experience to have Sky jump from Sky Tower and at the same time, it would be an extremely courageous thing to do...
Thanks Bharat for sharing wonderful Photo Journey of Night Life around Sky Towers in Aukland, New Zealand.
