I managed to get this picture of the Shard on a recent trip to London, this time I was more careful to have my new Nikon camera around my neck, as last time somebody knocked my camera out of my hand at this point. You can find everything you need to know about the Shard here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shard . Its the 87th largest building in the world, tallest in the EU and 4th biggest in Europe. To tell you the truth its big, it doesn’t look that big when you are stood directly beneath it.
All the best
