Visiting Ireland in April, Patrick Lanzing captured this image of the Spire of Dublin, a stainless-steel monument that stands over 393 feet high. Composed of steel tubes of varying thickness, it weighs over 126 tons. The spire rose in 2002 in an effort to revitalize the O'Connell Street area of Dublin. The revitalization project also included a new plaza and renovated storefronts.
