I think the best view of it is from the east as shown on a couple of recently posted pics. From that angle is does not interfere with St Paul's or the City cluster.

Great pictures Wawd, particularly like that first shot of the Shard - along with the Oxo Building - and CW in the background.

Guy's should take a look at Tour AXA. BTW Is the top section going to have those gaps filled with that darker glass, or will it remain as it is?

I like the contrast between the old church spires and the new tower.

Shard and Place diagram-7.4.2012 by The Shard Baby 6, on Flickr

"LONDON | London Bridge Tower (The Shard) | 309m | 1014ft | 73fl | T/O - Page ***"
The Shard is exactly 309.6768 metres tall as the Shard is 1016ft tall.
If you convert 1016ft to metres, you get 309.6768 metres.
So change the thread title/name again Wjfox.
