Report London 2012 Olympic Cauldron... in London 2012 Ceremonies Discussions Posted August 17, 2012 I agree on Beijing's being huge as was vancouver's comparatively to many others. It is interesting how much bigger salt lakes looked compared to sydney's but in real life with was not that much taller (with sydney on mast). Sadly sydney's was much taller on the mast than it is as a fountain, as can be seen below(The best digital photo I have ever found of it): Because of its position on top of such a high spectator stand, Aside from beijing, sydney's was probably one of the highest cauldrons in its games position, it looked good from inside the stadium looking up the stand, but looked a bit lost from outside the stadium(Torino's I also think looked good from the inside but a bit weird on the outside. Athens, Beijng and Barcelona were probably aesthetically the best at this.... Still the nicest Cauldron ever!
