Indeed. The ESB looks ridiculous.

construction on the height seems to have really slowed down... its taken over a week to complete 1 floor, and it's only just raised on one side to the next level.

*EDIT* nice set of second pics level 152 completed, 1 side is on level 153. .........so 565m ?


Whatas up with the colour of the water on the lake... :/

I think there is too much sand in the water. That's why we've got this ugly color. I only hope that they have a very good and big filter.

Nice pics Imre! You're the man!

Don't worry about the colour of the "water" in the lake. That's just a test and they might have mixed the water with some kind of colourants, propably to test for leaks or level of evaporation.

There's a reason after everything.

He he he he he he he he

Imre, you never stop keeping me amazed at these beautifull photo`s and cool vids (nice music in your car btw )

The colour off the lake is due to the fact that they dyed the lake`s colour yellow-greenish to test iff their are leaks or that it seeps into the ground too fast. It will be a better site to look at when they start to purify the water and add an natural lake bed to it to make the colour more natural.

Hope that will awnser some questions and here Imre and co:

Cheers for your hard work and have happy posting days!!!
