Hi Guys! This will be my first post on SSC, I've been reading without an account for months now, after taking some pics of The Shard today I thought i'd use them for my first post. So here goes:

Mrs BC booked tickets for the shard on the first day they went on sale last year and managed to get a slot on the first day - weather forecast wasn't looking good but I took my Nikon DSLR (luckily the afternoon weather was much better than the morning) so I rattled off a few shots so anyone else considering the new London attraction will have a feel for what the views are like.

There is also a level of duplication as there are two viewing levels 68 where it's all enclosed and a more open to the enviroment area on 72

As to be expected all shots are from behind glass - some due to the nature of the building are thro double layers of glass and that didn't work so well

There are a couple of night time shots taken later in early evening although forgetting the tripod and the remote wasn't clever!!!

Link to the album

http://s108.photobucket.com/albums/n...eShardFeb2013/

And a few I liked

Mid morning weather clearing up



Not a job I fancy



One day I'd like to get to the top of the gerkin for a return view



Muddy waters



Glass end



Floor Plan



Night Time (only time the Thames looks decent)







Usual statement - I'm more a happy snapper and most pics tend to be on lazy mode although I'm starting to learn a bit more about the manual settings and experiment a bit

Kit used Nikon D3000, Nikor 18-70 AFS and 70-300 AFS lens
