Quay West

By TrevBatWCC    
I'm amazed at how well my previous upload, 'Trinity Bridge, Manchester' did for User Awards – a hard act to follow!
More re-worked images from Manchester, this time from Salford Quays on a Camera Club outing in 2010. It's a great area for modern architectural photography, the most impressive being this, the Quay West Office Building, multi-let to a number of tenants. It sits at the end of the Millennium Bridge in Salford Quays across from the Lowry Centre and was built in 1990. It's one of the best I've ever come across for reflections, the whole of the building’s exterior comprising of copper tinted windows.
After a light dusting of snow here a couple of days ago, it's still white over today, but with a heavy frost! ❄ At least the sun’s shining… 😎
I'd like to wish all at EPZ a Happy New Year, and though things aren't going to change overnight, let's hope 2021 will turn out to be a better year 😀

As you say, a very impressive building, Trev. My favourite would probably be version one, as it shows the magnificence of the architecture in its setting, but they're all good. I wish you a very happy and safe 2021.

I guess that area must be a superb spot for capturing modern and futuristic architecture, Trev, and you have done justice to this particular example. All images captured in excellent detail and spot on exposure.
Wishing you and your's all the very best for 2021.

This always makes great reflections Trev. I have the same one on my wall, Taken many years ago when we used to go to Manchester a lot.

Super image and title too.
