Afloat in Salford Quays, between The Lowry and MediaCityUK
England

A bird's eye view from above the Princess Katherine in North Bay, between MediaCityUK and The Lowry at Salford Quays. I've wanted to shoot a panorama from here for a couple of years, as I've captured panos from many of the tall buildings nearby and wondered what it would look like from the water, surrounded by the iconic buildings all around. This viewpoint takes in two cities – Salford and Manchester – and one of the biggest development zones in the north of England in recent decades.


Amongst other sights, this view takes in the new BBC buildings, the MediaCity studios, the University of Salford's MCUK, ITV's offices (and across the Manchester Ship Canal, the new Coronation Street set), The Lowry and the Imperial War Museum in the North. Just beyond lies Trafford Park, and just out of sight, Manchester United's famous football stadium at Old Trafford.

This was a bit of a challenge to photograph – a side wind meant the boat was drifting and rotating considerably even in the time it took to shoot this – but I still think it provides a cool view of one of the most dynamic parts of Salford and Manchester.
