This is going to be such an iconic structure.

I love the picture, but the background looks so rural, almost has a second rate city feel like Frankfurt.

What you are seeing in the background is actually parts of the gigantic reservoirs in North East London that supply drinking water to the city. The reservoirs are a haven for natural wildlife, and most of the surrounding land is protected as green space and used as recreation ground for local residents.
