The Shard by night – London, April 2013

Isn’t it funny how we sometimes fail to appreciate what’s right in front of us?  I have spent so much time recently admiring foreign skylines in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai that I sometimes forget that London has it’s own awesome skyline.  This is The Shard, London’s tallest building viewed from across the Thames, with beautifully lit Southwark Bridge in the foreground.


Saturday Snapshots is a series of non-food photographs published every Saturday on CookSister.  Previously featured photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots archive pages. Many photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as high-quality A3-size calendarsIf you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting with any month (not only January), please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements.

      Thank you! And yes, the bridge makes the shot, both in terms of balancing the verticals, and providing a splash of colour :)

      I love the way that cities are totally transformed by night! All the ugly bits are hidden and they look as twinkly as a Christmas tree :)
