this is one of my favourite places for taking pictures of big ben in london. on a clear evening the setting sun makes the palace of westminster glow orange. And the reflection in this window is always spot on !
i was glad to walk past this location again last night when the conditions were aligned.
apologies for the posting of this photo again, but it is a new fresh one and i love it so !
we went to london with friends yesterday. started by train then go the tube to embankment where we caught the thames clipper to greenwich. it’s the only way to travel (if you ignore the other options). here we are waiting
but we did watch the 1pm ball drop, something a tour guide described as a “non event”, but one worth watching nevertheless. we felt thoroughly calibrated.
then, after a few hours wandering around the excellent martime museum we avoided a proper soaking (from the rain and the river) by taking the foot tunnel to the north side of the thames
before getting the driverless DLR to Bank to catch a tube to the train station. you can see the person driving the driverless train bottom left in this picture
