No wonder all your football teams are rubbish though. Look at those pitches!

Fantastic! It's so tempting to imagine the V Building slap bang in the centre of that shot, the BST & Regal Tower to the left & the Snow Hill Towers slightly off the picture to the right .... not forgetting all the others like Martineau Galleries Tower & VTP200 ..... which, incidentally, I checked their website today which I haven't seen for months & it all seems very, very positive, almost like it could be all systems go very soon!

It's Birminghams equivalent of Parliament hill. It looks spectacular.

No, Parliament hill has a better view of London than Primrose hill.

Great view there UV! Brings back memories of going to that park as a kid and thinking I could hit the skyline with a football if I hit it hard enough!

Some shots from Highgate:

Didn't realise how good the view was from there. For some reason the pictures came out slightly blurred and noisy. I'll have another go one day!

Love the 2nd one, the colours on the lower half of HCT are great. Guess BT won't even be visable when 103 Colmore Row is built

Just came across this one on Flickr. It's gorgeous. You'll have to keep using the shot to record the changing face of the city as we see towers emerge in that shot

I'll have a go! I rarely go around that area at all but I was going to the PC World there and happened to notice how great HCT looked in the light.
