It was pretty dim in the tower, so this hand-held shot was a challenge.

A fine shot of the circular steps with more sharpness than you shutter speed would suggest. You are obviously very good at hold the camera to your face and getting slow shots.

The acoustics must be an experience as much as the climb.

Good visual interest with the gentle arch and the contrasting harsh corners of the stairs. I've always found those types of stairs difficult to maneuver, once knew someone who had no choice but to put them in their home due to space, would make it tough on movers and furniture delivery men!
