The spiral staircase in the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse stretches seemingly into infinity.
Listed on Photoblogs.org
This is one of the most intriguing abstract photos I have ever seen.
This photo found me looking deep down the spiral staircase to see if I could see the bottom where it ends! I could never ever find it tho' I really looked.
The intricacy of each portion of the spiral seem to interwine with the next leaving a feeling of needing to know more about it! Where does it lead? Where will it take the adventure seeker?
Did you need to work with the lighting in the lighthouse so that you were able to take the original photo?
I must say this is captivating....

although heavily photoshopped, you didn't loose a anything of appealing on this picture. Good way of using filters!

Yeah--the processing is heavy in this image. However, I wanted to give a fairly conventional spiral staircase picture a bit of 'pop!' LV--We're actually looking up--there's no way you'd get me to the top! The lighting is the natural light coming in from the various windows at different levels in the tower.

Stairway to heaven? Love it Brian. A unique perspective on what is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Here they are almost all but gone.

There are just a few left on the Outer Banks, too. Most of them are now unmanned--it's logical, but a shame, too.

Wow, this is a major work of art. I love the technique and POV.

Thanks, Viewfinder. I have to admit that I felt rather dizzy taking this shot!
