A Room with a View

So where does one go to find the best views of London (or any other city?).

Well, often to the highest places one can get to.  Towers, bridges and hills can all offer great views and in this case, I went up to the Shangri-La hotel in London's Shard skyscraper.  It's easily the highest tower in London and the observation deck has stunning views.

The lobby of the Shangri-La is over 30 stories up in The Shard and while the best views are from the various restaurants, the hotel lobby itself offers this lovely view.

Initially I took the shot looking over St Paul's Cathedral from the window itself and then realised that it would be great to have the view framed by the lobby furniture.

I'm pretty happy with this image and hope to get back up there for sunset soon.

In the meantime, I hope you like this image - like all my London and Places images, it's available as a print.  Please get in touch via the Contact page for more details.

Thanks for reading, Mo
