Not a panoramic skyline shot but ...
I was standing at the Mailbox admiring the Cube and noticed how dense the cluster at five ways looked. Like a mini city all of its own.

Yeah I've always loved fiveways - particularly the office bocks as you approach it on the hagley road. I think it's always been a great gateway to the city (tho a couple more towers wouldn't go amiss). I have an affinity for it cos the hagley road was the way I got into town when I was a kid.

Fab pics Mark.
The one looking towards superhospital looks atmospheric with bit of mist and the gloomy sky

Good grief! That panorama is ******* amazing! Everything looks fantastic in it, and you can really see the density around snowhill building up with colmore plaza and the snowhill office block, to think what it will look like if they actually build the towers too...
