Woodmen Tower

The Woodmen Tower, in downtown Omaha, was the tallest building in the city for over 30 years. With 30 stories, it reaches a height of 478 ft. It is the home of the Woodmen of the World insurance company. In 2002, First National Bank's opened its new headquarters in a 634ft building which now ranks as the tallest. The Woodmen Tower has been my "skyline" since I was little and moved here. I was driving downtown recently and snapped this photo from my car (hence the fuzziness). There was an eerie glow to the city that night, and I like the light in this photo.

Nice light. Interesting to read the history of your city too and this building.

I like the light too. And I kept thinking that the name on the building was familiar...then it hit me, "About Schmidt." Didn't realize that it was an actual company!

This is a nice photograph. The light seems about as good as it gets.
