The Tokyo Skytree

Tokyo Skytree in Sumida, Tokyo

I wanted a shot of the Tokyo Skytree. But I wanted a shot that would include both the sky and a real tree. In the park on the opposite side of the Sumida River near the Sumida River Boat Terminal — where you can board a water bus — I found an angle I liked. The real tree dominates the frame, making the Tokyo Skytree look very small. In reality, the structure is  634 m tall. That’s taller than the CN Tower. In fact, it’s the second tallest free standing structure in the world.
