I’ve taken so many photos of this area of redevelopment on the River Clyde, however every time I visit there’s always something slightly different, or an interesting different angle on one of the structures.
This is looking up the centre of the Glasgow Tower, which is over 122m (400ft) tall – enough to see 40 miles away on a clear day. It’s shaped like a giant sideways wing or windvane, and the entire structure is mounted on a massive set of bearings, making it the only structure in the world able to freely rotate 360 degrees.
It rotates quite a lot – the most subtle change in the winds direction will cause it to creep round, which can have amusing consequences.
Sadly the tower has had a fair number of problems, and is still currently closed due to problems with the lift (passengers were trapped for 5 hours in January when the lift stuck half-way up the tower).
