    very space age and sci fi - that sky is a fantastic backdrop too!

    Thanks David, the sky was a definite bonus, as was the fact that it decided not to rain on us :)
    I find the flattened perspective interesting in this shot. The dome looks more like the 50mm version in person, but just by getting closer and wider it appears to flatten out.

    Very sci-fi - reminds me of a Dalek somewhat!

    Just needs a giant suction cup on a stick poking out of it ;-)

    hehehe It's full of plants that like warm humid weather all year round (as opposed to just in Summer).

    great brooding sky! really sets off the subject.
  • David de Groot said:
    Yeah we got quite the cloud show at just the right time. It sprinkled pathetically about 10 mins later and then cleared up.

    This dome is not geodesic. Geodesic refers to ALL greater circle geometry. This is based on lesser circle geometry.
