London - Winter Walk


    I love the light shining through the winter-bare trees, just before dusk


    the stark, strong lines of the Albert Bridge seen through the bare branches


   the fast-flowing River Thames which continues to thread through my life


   and the wonderful London parks - the lungs of this beautiful City.

  Taken in Battersea Park, London, January 2014

  3. I enjoyed looking at each of your photos - definitely a foreign city, but each image so familiar because England is such a part of our national history/memory. Your January days look very much like ours here in the Pacific Northwest.

  5. A London winter walk by the Thames and in those parks would also suit me well.

  6. O I do wish I could spend more time in London.
    I will, I must, I will.
    Countryside is all very well, but there is something about London by the river, or the Heath, or even the Westend.

    It’s time I shifted myself.

  7. Oh how I'd love to visit London. I suppose the next best thing is to see it through your loving eyes and lens. Lovely.

  8. Winter light (so long as it is light, and not gloom!) is beautiful, isn't it. And the Thames is so photogenic!

  9. Looking at your beautiful photographs made me homesick for London, I lived and loved there for 10 years as a student and afterwards and had such happy times!

  10. London means so much to so many people. I love to visit and having 4 of our children living there means there are plenty of opportunities. Thank you for all the comments - much appreciated!
