Photographer's Note

My third entry to the Scavenger Hunt - April, 2004
- 5th Category: The tallest building in any particular city.

I took this shot during the Hamburg Marathon. This is right before the finish line. In the background you can see the finish. The runners here have a time of about 4,5 hours.

That Hamburg TV tower, officially Heinrich Hertz tower (designated in honours of the physicist originating from Hamburg) is with distance the highest tower of the Hanseatic city with an overall height of 279,80m, whereby the conical concrete shank ends in 204m over the ground. Following its traditional landmark Michel (Michaelis church) the people call it Tele Michel.
