Thames Barrier

The Thames Barrier in London is an engineering marvel but is HUGELY overlooked by many people. A short train ride out the Charlton from London bridge and you get an awesome view back into Canary Wharf.

Charing Cross

Charing Cross Station

London is full of train stations. It took me years to realise that the colourful building at the other end of the Jubilee bridge over the river was in fact Charing Cross Station.  What makes that even more stupid is that I’ve walked over this bridge and into the station many times!  I hope you enjoy this long exposure of Charing Cross and the river Thames.

Tower Bridge – From the river

London Tower bridge

Today we took the river bus to Greenwich and we passed under Tower Bridge.  I had never seen it from the river before and had only previously been able to get photos from the side.  The river bus costs more to get around than the underground…but it is totally worth it for views like this!

Sunrise on the Thames

Sunrise Skyscrapers in London

During the winter months, it is easier to see the sunrise.  Mostly because it happens at the late time of 8 am!

I captured this one of the Walkie Talkie and the cheese grater (great names) this Morning just past sunrise.
