This is the Canary Wharf tower like you’ve never seen it—or at least that’s how camera enthusiast Elena Chaykmina found it… her reflective snapshot of One Canada Square won the ‘Geometric and Organic’ prize in this year’s Canary Wharf photography competition.
But overall winner was Victoria Jones who snapped two cute baby Great Crested Grebes (above) getting a lift on mummy bird’s back in Millwall’s North Dock.
She gets the grand prize of £1,000 in gift vouchers to spend on Christmas for her stunning picture taken near her home by the Blackwall Basin.
Rob Wilkinson’s unusual quick snap won him top prize in ‘Around the Streets and Gardens’ category.
The winners of the contest now in its fourth year were selected from 25 shortlisted entries on display at the Adams Plaza Bridge and all get gift vouchers.
