London city skyline

The towers of the City of London loom above Southwark Bridge. The most distinctive is probably 20 Fenchurch Street, popularly know as the “walkie-talkie” seen to the right of the image. There are a number of other towers planned, including 1 Undershaft, a blocky-looking tower almost as tall as The Shard on the opposite bank of the Thames.

London skyline

Jumping back six or seven weeks for today’s image, a shot of the City of London skyline taken from the South Bank at Blackfriar’s Bridge.

I like the way this has turned out – there’s a very slight haze on the tall buidings that gives a nice tonality to the shot. Even with a somewhat flat sky, I still think the image works well.

The handily-placed boat doesn’t hurt either. 🙂
