The focus for this month's Photo Gallery is Towers. Water towers/water tanks, coaling towers, sand towers, and even cell towers (should you model them) are all appropriate - as are any other tanks or towers. Either model or prototype photos are welcome.

I want to thank Rick for the suggesting this theme. If anyone has ideas for future themes, shoot me a PM.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Off to a good start, guys.

Crandell, your usual crisp photography with great depth of field.

Now that looks like a coal tower and maybe a a sand tower in the distance behind the water tower. Perhaps a photo showing that scene from the other direction?

Greg, your shot reminded me of this prototype shot I took last April at the Whippany Railway Museum.

Okay, here is an earlier shot from the opposite side of the scene, Bruce. This was taken three years ago before I learned how to stack images for ultra-sharp depth of field.

Thanks, Crandell. There's even a water tower in the background.

A twofer, Bob. Excellent.

Well, given the subject, I have to add my beer bottle water tower to the mix. This was inspired by a Pabst Brewery prototype that existed in Newark, NJ until a few years ago. Mine is decorated for the Stegmaier Brewery on my layout.

And a great addition it is, Chuck.

For those who never saw the original...

I've always wanted to take photos of all the water tanks in NYC. I was amazed they even exist!
