I took advantage of the gorgeous weather today by going outside and getting a few photos looking across the city from Barr Beacon.

I went to the same spot for the same reason a few months back but the weather was distinctly duller, so I thought I'd head back and get some fresh, brighter ones.




In this third shot I liked the look of the out-of-focus skyline in the background.




I'm pleased with the result. I'll reiterate that this skyline will become much denser and taller in the coming years, and I can't wait to see it happen.

The city in between play at Edgbaston for England v India. Screenshotted like a geek from a dodgy live stream at Glastonbury

How that councillor said the apartment development adjacent would look bad on tv I’ll never know...

Wish they’d further expand the stadium with continuing the design of the new stand

Took a walk up to where the Skyline/Hi-Line park in Birmingham could start on Upper Trinty Street. Fabulous views of the city. It would be amazing for the city if this came to fruition...

Using one of the photos of the skyline I took the other day, I've superimposed outlines of all proposed, approved, or under construction buildings above 100m onto the existing skyline. (A notable exception is Eastside Locks, which would be a couple of inches out of frame to the left)

Red = Proposed, planning application not yet submitted
Orange = Proposed, planning app submitted
Yellow = Approved
Green = Under construction

Original

RM, I'm probably being stupid, but what are they left to right? Clearly One Eastside at the far left, and Mercian and Barcode on the far right, but then?

Rolling greensward, sweeping down majestically from Brum's Plaza Hotel?

i live around the corner and drive down Beacon Road to see that view daily, I'm fantasizing about buying a plot of land in the adjacent fields and building a Grand Designs type house buried into the hills but overseeing the view of that skyline

From Twitter

Carl Chinn speaking at the Heritage with a View talk at the big peg.

Great vantage point for skyline shot.

They did a pop up restaurant in that space a few years back, it felt really cool and urban with amazing views

I do wonder how long the big peg will stay in it’s current form


Needs a refurbishment and I could see conversion to apartments on the cards too

Incidentally looking at these fantastic telecaptures I recall that it was a cricket match at edgbaston framed with the city skyline of the 80s which rose my attention towards birmingham for the very first time

Where and how high the ball would get hit, you'd see different parts of city skyline.
Ian botham was a big name in cricket in early 80s, also when Birmingham's super prix was going on, it was covered on tv, I seem to recall a journalist referring Birmingham to an eastern block city, but it was great having super prix in brum
