Sunrise over Amman, 2010

Twin Towers of Amman

I woke up at 4:30 this morning. My alarm was set for 5:15 but I often wake up early if I have to get up for something. Last August, I photographed these towers with a Canon PowerShot S5IS, because I only had the 18-55mm kit lens. Since then, I’ve acquired a 55-250mm lens, so I set up my tripod and took the same photo again. And this time the sun actually lined up with the towers!

These photos were taken on Rehov haGilgal, Mitzpeh Nevo, Maale Adumim, Israel. The distance between Mitzpeh Nevo and Amman is about 70 kilometers.

In the cropped photo below (taken just before sunrise) you can see that they replaced the crane on the south tower, which collapsed almost a year ago (May 16, 2009), at a height of 200 meters. The buildings are still under construction. I have no idea how many stories they are now.
