It might not happen very often, but even London can be blessed with a sunny cloudless day!
So here it is, a very rare specimen of blue London sky, surrounded by two skyscrapers in Canary Wharf.
On the left, you can see "25 Bank Street", which hosts the European headquarters of JP Morgan, although the original plan was to host Enron's European offices (but we all know how things went). On the right, you can see "40 Bank Street".
Both buildings are 153 meters (502 ft) tall.

bel POV vertiginoso sugli edifici, dai quali hai ottenuto un'immagine ricca di forme geometriche (cielo compreso).
Ben fatto! TFS!

I am a fan of architectural shots myself so I was immediately attracted to your shot. I love the unusual POV you have used to create the blue shape in the centre of the shot - bet your neck was hurting looking up so sharply! Very sharp image great DOF.
Your right the UK weather tends to make photography like this a seasonal activity!

I like the POV that makes us feel vertigo ! I love too how the blue sky gives blue tones to the glasses of the buildings. Very well done !

I always say its important to look upwards when photographing high rise architecture :)
the blue steals the show. its fun to see all the windows and the lines extending upwards to the sky.
fun perspective too.
