Photographer's Note

I took this photo while standing on one of the clear glass floor of the Sky Tower in the city of Auckland, New Zealand.

The tower is part of the SKYCITY Auckland casino complex, having been originally built for Harrah's Entertainment.The tower attracts an average of 1,450 visitors per day for a variety of reasons.

The upper portion of the tower contains two restaurants and a cafe — including New Zealand's only revolving restaurant, located 623.2 ft. from the ground, which turns 360 degrees once every hour. It has three observation decks at different heights, each providing 360 degree views of the city. The main observation level at 186m (610.08 ft.) has 38mm (1.5") thick glass sections of flooring giving a view straight to the ground. The top observation deck labeled 'Skydeck' sits just below the main antenna at 721.6 ft.and gives views of up to 50.84 miles in the distance.

The glass floor is so scratched on the surface. I took 3 photos and this is the best I came up with.
