The Iconic Eiffel Tower from Below
Built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the World’s Fair, the 320 meter (1,050 ft) tall Eiffel Tower, located on the Champ de Mars in Paris, is undoubtedly one of the most iconic structures in the world. For 41 years it held the title as the world’s tallest man-made structure until the completion of the Chrysler Building in New York City in 1930.
The Eiffel Tower’s iconic design is recognized around the globe, however the view looking up the tower from below is not as familiar. The perspective offers a different view for photographers, and the gallery below shows how a creative eye can bring a new dimension to such a well known structure.
