Markus Dennis: "Sunset atop the crest of a seven-mile long ridge where gusts sheer trees to mere stumps. These oaks, the 'Twin Towers', have endured by nearness to one another and withstood decades in the forest along a winding single-track trail I often trek in Hancock County, Indiana."

Colleen O'Keefe: "'Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair'. It was one of first thoughts I had upon seeing this amazing art installation called The Rookery at the Chicago Botanic Garden. It is made entirely of willow saplings and one can walk through its nature made towers and tunnels enjoying the feeling of the wind and sun or even just pretend to be in a fairy tale palace."

Stefanie Hauger: "The North Grandstand in Singapore is an iconic brutalist building from 1933 that I have always adored. Its future is currently unclear as the area is undergoing major redevelopment, so this picture is an everlasting document of it for me. This view is of the rear tower."

Matthew Logan: "As someone who is afraid of heights, I get a pit in my stomach every time I imagine taking these steps to the top of the smokestack."

Graham Woollven: "The Old Light on Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel is a magnificent granite tower built on the highest point of the island. Sadly it proved to be less than perfect in operation, being frequently hidden in mist and fog. It had to be replaced by two lighthouses, one at each end of the island, built much closer to sea level."

Ladka Kurzrock: "I captured this photo with my drone early in the morning just before the sun came up. The towers of Sydney were immersed into a thick fog and the softness of the morning sun created a perfect composition for this photo."

Benjamin Rose: "Nothing says tower in the southwest like the stunning Glastonbury Tor, something truly magical about this place when the sun hits it just right."

Paola Denari took this picture at Bardenas Reales, Spain: "This amazing landscape seemed to be from another planet and ending the day watching the sunset with this tower and natural shapes was the cherry on the pie."
