Views from the Shard

The Shard is this 95-story tall spikey building on the left (Southbank of the River Thames). At nighttime the top part is lit up and it is always an attractive sight.  It is the tallest building in London (at the moment!) and today the sun was shining and the sky was clear, so we decided to hand over a ton of money and take the lift up to the viewing platform. We were rewarded with some stunning views over central London and could see for miles northwards. The sun was too bright to see much towards the southside, but that did not matter. So, here is some of what we saw. It was hard to avoid reflections from the glass, so apologies for that.
