Photographic notes
The 'platforms' are narrow, so best to try and video or take photographs from nearby if you can. There is a lot of traffic, so this will obstruct shots occasionally, and also interfere with sound on videos. The sun should not pose a problem, as you are shooting in a north or south direction.
