London Icons 4


Another view of The Shard, London's towering skyscraper: 87 floors of glass designed by the Italian architect Renzo Piano. Despite its size, it has an ethereal quality and somehow doesn't look as dominant as it might seem. It sits quite happily, I feel, alongside the classical 19th century tower of Southwark Cathedral.

  1. Hi Jenny .. lovely shot - much better than my gloom, drizzly filled sardine peopled day at the Tower looking across to half the Shard - the rest mist-cloud covered ... Southwark nowhere to be seen!! Cheers Hilary
