That picture above is one of the MOST spectacular I've seen in my 28 years of life.

I wish it was a bit larger, so I could use it as a desktop wallpaper. (With the permission of the author, of course)

SWFC cladding isn't as clean as it can be yet (obviously) therefore you'll find better photos of this (maybe perfection) in few months with perfectly clean surface of SWFC.

It's not that easy to see in the new pictures but I think I like the new lighting scheme better than the floodlights shining on the building. Maybe we'll see a true night shot soon but the last picture was indeed beautiful.

you'll have to wait a year to get the exact photo of this again from the same spot, but don't matter it looks good, would've looked better if the hole was round on and the sun fitted exactly through it.
