The tallest sandcastle is 13.97 m (45 ft 10.25 in) tall and was created by Ted Siebert (USA) of the Sand Sculpture Company and a crew of 19 on behalf of Turkish Airlines, in Virginia Key Beach, Miami, Florida, USA, on 27 October 2015. Using 1,800 tonnes of imported sand, the team worked for two weeks to create the tallest sandcastle.
Turkish Airlines wanted to celeberate their special occasion of bridging Miami to more than 270 destinations via Istanbul in a fun and unusual way. They gifted Miami residents by bringing together 19 sculptures from all around the world by building the largest sandcastle - EVER! - 4500 Square foot, 45 feet 10.25 inches tall.

Downtown Pittsburgh, colloquially referred to as the Golden Triangle and officially the Central Business District, is the urban downtown center of Pittsburgh. It is located at the confluence of the Allegheny River and the Monongahela River whose joining forms the Ohio River. The "triangle" is bounded by the two rivers. The area features offices for major corporations such as PNC Bank, U.S. Steel, PPG, Bank of New York Mellon, Heinz, Federated Investors and Alcoa. It is where the fortunes of such industrial barons as Andrew Carnegie, Henry Clay Frick, Henry J. Heinz, Andrew Mellon and George Westinghouse were made.
The above pictures were taken from Mt. Washington.

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her... I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her...” ― Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, The Little Prince
