This Month in Photo of the Day: Traveler Contest Images

The Round Tower is a 17th-century tower built under the authority of Christian IV in central Copenhagen, Denmark. It was built as an astronomical observatory, and this image shows its well known, 7.5-degree helical corridor, which leads to the top and an expansive view of Copenhagen.
