A Panorama of Glasgow University
By now this tower should be becoming familiar to any reader of this photoblog, and for a good reason: it can be seen from practically EVERYWHERE. This particular panorama was created from shots captured from the southern end of Kelvin Way, from right next to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
That general area is also one of the few places where one can see the South Front of the Main Building of the University in one view. Interestingly, even though Gilmorehill rises just after the Main Building and the 12 floors of the University Library sit just behind the Main Building, no other University buildings can really be seen from this spot. (If you look very closely at the picture, you’ll notice the a part of the tower and roof of the University Library are partially visible just to the left of the flag pole. It’s the block-shaped tower amongst pointy spires.)

(The original version might not open, or might take forever to open, as it’s a 10991 x 3408 pixel picture sized at 5.41MB. Might be best to download the original and view it on your computer to see the view in all its glory.)
