I think that's the angle from where it seems the most tall and thin.

I'm guessing you work on the tower, or you're just incredibly lucky and got up to the top.

And amazing video too. Great to overlook The Gherkin and Tower 42.

Here is the first section of mast. It arrived on Wednesday night (31 March) with a police escort. It's 20 Metres long!


It was supposed to be fitted on Thur 01, but wind speeds stopped that.
So it will go on this week.

In this pic from 4 years ago we can see the cladding was always meant to be mental on the front (or whatever side this is)


In any event, I hope the waiting list isn't too long to have a seat at the restaurant at the top.

Those photos and video taken from the top make me think how much London needs a skyscraper/tower-based observation deck. The London Eye, Monument, St. Paul's dome etc. are pretty good and unsurprisingly very popular, but they're just not high enough. Unfortunately it seems any such deck that opens in London(PO Tower, One Canada Square...) doesn't last very long before it's closed.

Let's hope the Shard and Pinnacle's(and Heron will apparently have a restaurant, judging from eddyk's post?) decks stay open long enough for us to get a chance.
