The final stop of the day, after a busy day was walking along South Bank, and deciding it was a perfect time to head up the London Eye. Timing the thirty minute ride, to capture the unusually great light in London before sunset at the peak of the 135metre wheel.

Greenwich Walk

Walking on from Canary Wharf, we took the stroll under Thames linking Canary Wharf to Greenwich

Emerging on the Southern side of the Thames, the view up to Greenwich Park and the historic architecture quickly captures the eye.  We took a much needed pub lunch rest at the Trafalgar Tavern, and took the opportunity to borrow a friends impressive lens – the “holy grail” Canon 85L (f1.2)

Met up with a group of photographers for a walk around Canary Wharf, Greenwich Park and the O2 (Millennium dome).

Starting around the financial and modern district of Canary Wharf, the buildings created good shooting subjects.
