Dramatic sunbursts light up the London Shard skyscraper

There was a dramatic London skyline seen from Brixton today as the winter sun bounced off the Shard Tower, near London Bridge.

The tower cranes look almost ghostly in the light reflected off the 309.6 metres (1,016 ft) tall, glass-covered skyscraper.

Earlier this week, the Mayor of London officially opened the panoramic viewing platform on level 72 of the 310m (1,016ft) tower, with at least four men taking advantage of the stunning location to propose marriage during the day.

The tickets aren’t cheap though, with an adult pass currently pegged at a painfully pricey £24.95.
