Photographer's Note

Hello

Today I thought I would take a break form the underground views of Moscow and give you a view of Moscow International Business District. It is rather like the equivalent of London's Canary Wharf. It is impressive in terms of the number of high rise towers such as this, which are clustered together to give the impression that the buildings are on an island. The buildings contrast sharply in architectural style with the Soviet, Stalinist style buildings that symbolise state power and authority which surround them. So much so, that the cluster of buildings stand out vividly in the heart of Moscow's skyline.

Here you can see three of the main buildings. The twisted, curvaceous building is the Evolution Tower, which stands some 255m tall. The building on the right of the frame is the Imperia Tower, which stands 239m tall. The building in the upper left corner is part of a complex of buildings known as the City of Capitals and stands 302m high.

I took the shot in black and white because on this day Moscow had thunder and lightning and a lot of heavy rain.

Enjoy.
