    I noticed that one or two people wondered if refraction was causing the curve of the towers to be exaggerated closer to the horizon. Well, I don't think so.

    If you look at the picture, there are as many towers in the last 20% of the line as there are in the 80% closest to the observer. That's why the towers further out appear to curve more. The curve over the first 80% of the line is the same curve as the one represented by the last 20%, which is compressed into a quarter of the space.
