This week’s photo challenge with the Daily Post is called “Beyond.” The prompt is to choose a photo that leads the viewer to look beyond, either with hidden depths or the focal point being something that acts as a framing for the rest of the picture.
The photo I chose was from my trip to a summer program in Groningen, Netherlands. The view is from the top of the Martini Tower, the highest tower in that city. We climbed to the top, which was a very twisty turny adventure with all of the original stairs and a rope railing.
I chose this photo because not only do you get perspective from the edges of the ledge, but it looks down on a square in the middle of town. Furthermore, the focal point is the square, but you can see well beyond that into the skyline of the city where there is an interesting mix of trees, old churches and other older buildings interspersed with some newer architecture.
