This is the stunning view coming out of Canary Wharf underground station. In the rain !
The big row of bicycles are rent-able from Barclays. Quite a good idea actually for getting around cheaply, seeing the sights, although might be better to do this in the summer …
It’s a panorama straight off my iPhone 4s, with a little colour enhancement in Photoshop …

Thanks tony 🙂
Good photo! This is interesting (and beautiful!) because I remember a Doctor Who episode (from 2006?) where they talk about The Battle of Canary Wharf. It’s nice to see a photo of it from real life.
It’s far less exciting in real life I fear LOL
I posted it as I figure there are many that have never seen and also many who may never see …
Nice looking place, though.
I envy your being in London even in the rain – good shot! Thanks for stopping by to like one of my posts!
You are welcome, and I’m back in South East Asia again … and actually glad to be out of the cold and the rain !
Wonderful photo Don!
Thanks Debbie, much appreciated 🙂
It’s a amazing what you can do with smartphone cameras these days!
At 8 megapixels it takes better photos than my dedicated cameras of a few years ago … I like that it’s light and portable, and often I can get some awesome results 🙂
Ah I used to work there, stunning views!
Loving your blog as well.
Thanks, much appreciated 🙂
London’s got some of the best architecture for photography in Europe.
For sure, although I am always limited on time … still I managed to get some good shots … more to come later …
Nice photo Don.
Thanks Irene, bit different from sunsets from the tropics, but something not everyone will get to see …
Yes, you are right. It is also okay to show different kind of motives, I think. Also much more fun for you to photograph.
Yes, it’s interesting to explore all different angles of photography … I like the large spaces inside buildings too … panoramas are great because they enable me to capture more of the scenery 🙂
I do understand that. I used photography in my last company for my magazines and newspapers, but I have never tried with panoramas. One day I will try too 🙂
🙂 so I’m preaching to the converted …. hope all is well with you 😉 DC
Cool. Loved the clip – what kind of dog person are you? I almost typed god-person but then I’ve been wrangling with a stray cat….
🙂 not sure, no one ever asked me that before !
And thanks 🙂
I know that view very well! Great shot.
🙂 morning on the way to work I’d hazard a guess ?
Looks pretty incredible – one day we shall visit the capitol – for now – we rest – 😀
true say … gn
Very crisp and clear. The scope is amazing, I mean the wide angle.
Thanks Nia, I’m quite pleased with my iPhone panos, main thing I learnt was a very steady hand and keep the horizon in the same place !
That must take a steady hand!
Maybe I’ll post some of the one’s that didn’t work out so well, the worst so far was one of the outside of Bangkok airport, I think … I always try to take at least two photos of everything, that way I’m more likely to get a good one … with panos I often do one from Left to right, and then do one from right to left … sometimes the lighting works better in one way or the other.
That’s a good habit! Yes, I’ve some that have weird shaped borders on the bottom and top.
2012 was the first time I did any work in London and I was able to work in an office in Canary Wharf so I recognise roughly where this shot was taken. I remember being simply awed by the pure scale of the area and how it is strikingly good looking.
Great picture 🙂
Thanks, and yes I also worked there for a few months … it’s pretty impressive !
