    Described by their website as "A slender glass and stainless steel structure of 46 storeys (230) metres tall, it will be an inspiring addition to the London skyline at 110 Bishopsgate, London EC2."

    The floors we counted on the way up was 44 (+2 as they don't count the bottom 2 floors), but when we got up there, we got up another few floors on scaffolding.

    On floor ~32 there's a gantry out onto the crane, so after we'd been on the roof, up we went. Stood in the crows nest, above everything and everyone, with the wind in my face was beautiful. I could have stayed there all night.

    Stunning views, although when I got home I realised my filter must have been dirty or misted up or something, and with loads of shots, I'd left it on manual focus. So picture fail for the most part :(

    Visited with Edd, Over and an explorer who wants to remain nameless (but who I'd like to point out wore a harness and was clipped in all the time)

    I was taking this shot with my tripod set so the camera was over the edge, several shots later, I glanced down, and realised exactly how high I was. Brown trouser moment :s

    And a Pano made of fail, but was the only one worth keeping.

    Huge props to those who went before, and those who shall undoubtedly follow.
