Salford Quays Architecture

The architectural developments at Salford Quays in Trafford, Manchester are great for photography.
The buildings compete with one another for attention around the whole site, with glass and steel reaching for the sky and reflecting in the surrounding dock waters.

Among the many new structures are the Lowry Centre and Theatre, The Imperial War Museum North, MediaCity UK which houses the BBC and ITV Northern Studios, the Millenium Bridge and Quay West office building.

All taken using my Fuji X20 camera.

These images do not include any of the new MediaCity site. I have heard that photography is forbidden on its site, but I'm going to give it a try and see what happens......

Let's start with a panorama.

I dashed up to the previously photographed harvest fields to capture this colourful sunset.
