Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Look up. Look WAAAAYYYY up!

Description: Show us photos looking up at really tall things such as buildings, towers, tall trees, or even giants!

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

Right over our back yard.  Thankfully, I wore pants that day.

Blimp flyovers used to be a common thing here in the western part of PA.
This is from February 2012. I snapped this from my driveway here in Beaver County, PA.

Those steam clouds are from the Beaver Valley Power Station (Bruce Mansfield plant) here in Beaver County, PA. This was a common sight when I was coming home from work. I took this pic less than a 1/2 mile from my home in January 2014. Those "clouds" made a mini sub climate over the plant. I used to make deliveries there and while everywhere else in the tri-state area was bright, dry and sunny, it would be raining below the steam clouds.

Looking up through palm leaves from the bottom floor of the University Center at the University of Montana.  A good place to stop during Pokemon Community Day. Shot on Kodak Imagelink HQ microfilm loaded into a Pentax Auto 110.

During the "Salute to Heroes" series of Air Force flyovers, the Tampa Bay area was treated to a KC-135 Stratotanker as it flew over several hospitals on the west coast. I got a shot as it was headed back from Sarasota to St. Pete.

On our way to a softball tournament we stopped at a fast food joint parking lot to meet up with a teammate for the trip. Treated to a very large bald eagle at the top of a power pole drying its feathers in the setting sunlight.
