The scale of London can only be truly appreciated from a height. There is no better place in London to do this than from the Shard. This image was shot from the very top of the Shard, 310 metres above London, which is more than 60 metres above the public viewing platform on the 72nd floor.
A city at once orderly and sprawling, with nighttime streets lit up like a lava flow, the panorama shows us the huge extent of the metropolis. With over 250 sky rise developments planned for London in the next decade it’s an exciting time for London. The latest additions are 20 Fenchurch Street (the Walkie Talkie) and the Leadenhall Building (the Cheesegrater).
