The Shard, London
The Shard is taking shape, now, and has already taken over as the UK's tallest building. For a short while it will be the tallest building in Europe, but it will be overtaken by one (or maybe two) in Moscow. But consider this - it is only 45th in the world. The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is more than double its height.
It is fascinating how the building changes its aspect as you move around London, I will be bringing you more pictures over coming days, interspersed with others. This view - possibly the best at present is from the Millennium Footbridge.
