The Shard is the new building dominating the London Skyline, built near London Bridge it is the highest building in western europe. This shot was taken from Tower Bridge. Being in London, I didn't expect a sunset and had actually just left the hotel to grab some tea as I hadn't eaten since breakfast with a aim of doing some dusk/night photography. Only to get around 500 yards from the hotel to see the skies starting to light up and I quickly headed back to the hotel and grabbed my camera and went to tower bridge. I played with quite a few compositions but I felt while the water is a lot of empty space it was still the strongest with it reflecting some of the colour and the sky was at its most fantastic at this point. I didn't eat until about 10pm either!
