Photographer's Note

From the diverse platforms of observation placed in the plants 68 to 72, (the "Viewing Gallery") of the skyscraper The Shard, in London, the visitors can enjoy a fantastic panorama in a bird-view on the city.
I was there, where I took many photos, because the day was luminous and was offering a great visual radius. In this photo you can see in the foreground the 20 Fenchurch Street Building, nicknamed "Walkie Talkie", on the right side The Gherkin, and in background, a bit higher, The Leadenhall Building.
Though the glass of the front was creating some effect not wished by the photographers, I think that this sight deserved to be caught.
I hope you like.

This one is my last photo for a few days, because tomorrow I initiate a small trip across several places of Spain. See you soon.

Desde las diversas plataformas de observacin situadas en las plantas 68 a 72, (la Viewing Gallery) del rascacielos The Shard, en Londres, los visitantes pueden disfrutar un panorama fantstico a vista de pjaro sobre la ciudad.
Fue all donde tom muchas fotos, porque el da era luminoso y ofreca un gran radio visual. En esta foto podis ver en primer plano el edificio 20 Fenchurch Sreet, apodado Walkie Talkie, al lado derecho The Gherkin, y al fondo, un poco ms alto, The Leadenhall Building.
A pesar que el cristal de la fachada creaba algn efecto no deseado por los fotgrafos, pienso que esta vista mereca ser captada.
Espero que os guste.

sta es mi ltima foto por unos das, porque maana inicio un pequeo viaje a travs de varios lugares de Espaa. Hasta pronto.
