The Shard emerges from the mist

Over recent weeks I’ve showcased photographs that had been heavily reworked using Photoshop. On this occasion, things are a bit different. Pictured here emerging from the mist is The Shard in London. I’ve photographed The Shard many times, but I think this is the most dramatic image I have taken of this famous London landmark.

Enjoying The View From The Shard

When The Shard was under construction, I would regularly catch the train into London Bridge and look up at the steel and glass monolith with deep suspicion. I couldn’t see how it was going to add to London’s skyline.

The Shard, on a sunny day.

Here is an image I recently took of The Shard in London. It was a big experiment as I was taking the shot directly into bright sunlight.

The Shard, as seen from Tower Bridge

As half-term neared its end, we paid a family visit to Tower Bridge in London on Friday. Being something of an engineering geek, I was very keen to learn about the bridge’s construction and how it works.

#MySundayPhoto, 20 July 2014. The Shard in Central London

Earlier this week I went to a bloggers’ event in Central London. Getting there involved passing through London Bridge Station. As I left the station I looked up and this is what caught my eye. For a variety of reasons, I’ve never been a huge fan of the Shard, but it does look very majestic from this angle.

There is a filthy secret behind this picture.  View Post
