Skywatch Friday - Thames

A view of the Thames taken from Embankment looking back towards Blackfriars bridge. Across the river you can see the Oxo tower.

A brief post today as I have a horrid cold. The downside of living in a city of London. I seem to catch so many.

Remember to visit other skywatchers around the globe today.


Don't forget my competition that is running at present to win yourself a pair of tickets to Brussels. You can enter as many times as you like.

It's not just in London that autumn colds are arriving. Dorset shares them! Hope yours is a short one.

I like stormy lights and am wondering whether London is having a lot of them at present (as in the swan picture) or whether it's the way you take / present the photographs.

Swine flu? It is so much in the media here about it, but not many more are sick than usual.

Very nautical photo .. the curious looking vessel in the foreground looks like an old classic. Sorry about your dreaded cold. Touch wood, I haven't had one for some years now.

You said it! I've just finished another round of antibiotics and I'm still getting over whatever hit me. Rest and get well soon!

Love the light in your photo! And what is that huge, sprawling building to the left of the skyscraper?

I love the way the sunlight hits the Thames in the evening. Sometimes the whole river seems like a great big work of art

I love the colour tones the sunlight creates.
