Looking up at Canary Wharf, London

Every since I found myself looking up at these three skyscrapers in Canary Wharf back in January 2007 I knew that this would make an interesting photograph. Unfortunately I didn’t return till last Friday night, but on the bright side I had my new 10-20mm super wide angle lens. The Canary Wharf Tower (or One Canada Square) is the one in the centre of the photo and currently the tallest building in the UK at 235.1 metres (771 ft). Followed by Citigroup Centre on the left and 8 Canada Square on the right of this picture which both stand at 199.5 metres (654 ft). One Canada Square looks a lot smaller than the other buildings in this photograph because it was much further away from my lens.

To capture this image my camera was on a sturdy Manfrotto tripod with the focal length at 10mm. The exposure time was 30 seconds at an aperture of f/18 – it was taken at 10:19pm on the 16th of May 2008.
