360 from The Shard

The Shard, for those who don't know, is a stunning skyscraper that is currently emerging from the ground in London.  Not that long ago, it was a concrete tower surrounded by cranes.  It is now a glimmering construction that can be seen from 20+ miles away and is nearing completion.

Once finished, it will house offices, a hotel, homes (for very rich people), restaurants and a viewing deck. I understand that it will cost £20 to get to the top.

In a year or so, the building will look something like this...

A brilliant photographer called Will Pearson has taken a 360 image from the top of The Shard. It's an amazing photo and well worth checking out HERE.  I am not sure exactly how he did it, though it was obviously multiple images, but I am glad he did! The image below is a very small part of the photo:

  1. Currently, if you have £40k you too can take that trip to the top. That's info from construction lawyers and industry meet last thurs night.
