London's 2012 Olympic venues viewed from Alexandra Palace

One of the first sun-splashed days of 2011 provided some tempting views of London from Alexandra Palace, one of my favourite London landmarks. 
   I zoomed in across six miles on some of the new structures on London's skyscape, including the new Olympic Stadium (below) and the Aquatics Centre (above). The Shard looks well on its way to becoming Europe's tallest building.
   The last photo suggests London's householders are highly vulnerable to the impact of decisions taken by bankers in the gleaming glass and steel towers of Canary Wharf, part of London's financial centre.
