The tallest landmark around is the Joseph Chamberlain Memorial Clock Tower at Birmingham University. I knew a picture of it would turn up on here at some point, but I love that it’s first iteration is covered in thick, low cloud.
This building is the Rotunda. It’s a pretty old high rise office building in my city, and it’s been there for far longer than I remember. It stands there inherently recognisable from the miles surrounding it.
