Looking north west over Leicester city centre from the 19th floor of St George’s tower.

The view looks along Charles Street towards the city centre.

The photo to the right shows part of the view out of a window, taken whilst Keith was photographing the interior and exterior of the building for a commercial property brochure – one of Northlight’s areas of commercial photography.

The photograph is composed of a dozen individual shots stitched together using Autopano Giga stitching software [review].

There are more such views on our High Resolution Photography page.

The Blue Tower

No need to wonder why St George’s is locally know as the ‘Blue Tower’.

This is the view from the other side of the building.

    Thanks for that – looks as if zoomify is not working well with some aspect of WordPress in this instance – sorry for the lack of full screen.

    “Full screen” version, which has a large Northlight Images banner, across the top, does not work properly in Chrome in Windows 10. When zooming in it reverts to a very coarse version of the image.
