Shot from the top of one of the towers at Holy Hill in Wisconsin. This shot was taken straight across the horizion from my POV shot. In the full size version you can see this church.

I used a fisheye lens and stuck my camera through an iron rod fence they have in place to keep people from falling out. The climb to the top is not fun but the views from up there make you forget about the climb.

Thanks for all the comments and votes. I was wishing for a top 10, Can't get much closer with out reaching goal. But 11th is acceptable never the less.

Excellent shot. Love the obviously good framing, sun position and DoF but most of all I love the palette of colours from the foreground greys across lush greens and reds/oranges to the blue. This is one of those photos where a lifeless sky actually strengthens the photo rather than weakening it (clouds etc).

good view, I like the way you framed it. The bend on the horizon gives a good feel of distance.
