    Salford Quays is almost on my door-step and prior to discovering UE I was always there for photography trips, eating out, visiting the theatre and the occasional spot of retail therapy, not knowing or thinking about some of the other possibilities. I've been planning to meet up with Max7866 for a while now but things always got in the way, like the weather for example! we rescheduled our meeting a few times and eventually got together on a perfectly mild Spring evening. There was plenty of high places to choose from, with relatively hassle free access.

    We first went to the Holiday Inn but got stopped in our tracks by a bar man so we decided to head out towards Millennium Tower. It was fairly straight forward once we were in and spent around an hour on the roof. The air quality was pretty poor that night due to the Salford recycling plant fire which really affected my images. After a while we decided to try our luck at the Holiday Inn again. This time we got in and spent another hour or so on the roof. These images came out slightly better but I'm never happy with my night shots. There's always a problem with WB which makes my images look too yellow. Perhaps it's just me getting used to my new-ish camera.


    MILLENNIUM TOWER

    Millennium Tower is a 220 feet tall development situated on the waterfront at Salford Quays. It’s a block of luxury penthouse apartment with 20 floors. With its contemporary architecture, the complex is situated within walking distance of the Media City and the Lowry Centre. The tower block offers luxurious living space, whilst helping to transform the Salford Quays skyline.

    HOLIDAY INN

    The Holiday Inn Express is located in thriving Salford Quays, surrounded by the water & history of the Manchester Ship Canal & within 1 mile of Manchester United Football Club (Old Trafford), the Lowry Theatre & the Imperial War Museum.

    The glass-fronted, 16-floor hotel is in MediaCityUK's studio block.


    The views were much better from here so I'm glad we didn't give up and go.

    Thanks AR, so have I, but everything looks better from the top :) I hate heights too and I always feel scared climbing but the rush of adrenaline helps to push you along. You should give it a try :)
