Al Hamra

I spent almost three hours photographing Kuwait City from Al Hamra Tower yesterday. This magnificent building took me to the highest point in Kuwait on the 74th floor - which I'm told is about 400m high.  I will go through the 300 photos I took with my Nikon over the next few days, and will post the full story with better quality images.  For now, please enjoy this time lapse attempt.  I used a Canon G11 and held it in place, on the scaffolding, using a Gorilla Pod.  The intervals were not regular and I know I missed some of the interesting bits, but I hope it gives you an idea of the elevation and views.  More images soon...

If you'd to be able to do some advanced stuff with your G11, I've used CHDK on a G7 and G9 before.

Look interesting... Will read up on it when I have time.

It's quite useful if I can get more out of the camera on business trips, when I usually only take my G11.
