Sunset on the Shard at Canary Wharf

Finally Spring has arrived and about time too. This has to have been one of the longest winters I have known in a long time. But now that the sun has finally come out, its great to see people coming out again.

Anyway, this weeks shots are from Canary Wharf from a few weekends ago when the sun had decided to come out of hibernation. I had decided this time to take my tripod out one late afternoon / early evening and captured these shots. Canary Wharf was a ghost town apart from a few tourists and the odd photographer. The scene was very quiet and in complete contrast to how I had seen it during the week. The sunset was beautiful this evening with the rays bursting through the dramatic clouds. A friend of mine mentioned that it reminded him of scene out of Gotham, unfortunately the Bat signal did not arrive to complete the scene.

While the sunset was awesome I wanted to capture something a little bit more than just the sunset. I was pleased with the one above but also of my second running picture below. The key element for me though were the rays complementing the shard perfectly.
