a tangled web woven

Mount Cargill / Dunedin, New Zealand
A view from the ground looking up into the Mount Cargill television transmission tower, the tallest structure in Dunedin at 105 meters. The tower sits atop Mount Cargill (or Kapuka-taumahaka in Māori), a 680 meter high volcanic outcrop that dominates the skyline in this city of 125,000 on the South Island. The view of the Otago Peninsula and surrounding country from this point is incredible. And a bit of trivia - Dunedin's Baldwin Street is the steepest street in the world with a maximum slope of 35%.
