Photographer's Note

After more than a month inactive, due to surgical intervention that has left me a bit K.O., today I return to my normal activity here, once I've overcome this heavy process.

From the diverse platforms of observation placed in the plants 68 to 72, (the "Viewing Gallery") of the skyscraper The Shard, in London, the visitors can enjoy a fantastic panorama in a bird-view on the city. From up there I took many photos.
In this third photo that I publish here, you can see the view towards the west of the city, with the railway line winding between the buildings until you reach the Charing Cross station crossing the Hungerford Bridge. On the right we see the Waterloo Bridge, on the left, the London Eye, the Waterloo station, and almost out of frame, the Big Ben. The day was clear and the view leads our eyes far away, despite the light fog.
Though the glass of the front was creating some effect not wished by the photographers, I think that this sight deserved to be caught.
I hope you like.

------------------------------

Despu駸 de m疽 de un mes inactivo, debido a una intervencin quirrgica que me ha dejado un poco K.O., hoy regreso a mi actividad normal aqu, una vez superado todo este pesado proceso.

Desde las diversas plataformas de observacin situadas en las plantas 68 a 72, (la 天iewing Gallery) del rascacielos The Shard, en Londres, los visitantes pueden disfrutar un panorama fant疽tico a vista de p疔aro sobre la ciudad. Desde all arriba tom muchas fotos.
En esta tercera foto que publico aqu, pod駟s ver la vista hacia el oeste de la ciudad, con la lnea de ferrocarril serpenteando entre los edificios hasta llegar a la estacin de Charing Cross cruzando el Puente de Hungerford. A la derecha vemos el Puente de Waterloo, y a la izquierda, el London Eye, la estacin de Waterloo, y casi fuera de encuadre, el Big Ben. El da era claro y la vista llegaba muy lejos, a pesar de la ligera neblina.
A pesar que el cristal de la fachada creaba algn efecto no deseado por los fotgrafos, pienso que esta vista tambi駭 mereca ser captada.
Espero que os guste.
