SUNSET FROM THE SOUTHBANK

I decided to write more about my trip to England, not just regrets I have considering, at the time, not shooting in raw format or not having a prime lens ready (for every coffee shop I entered in the UK). During our 10 day trip to England, we visited London  twice and every time the day ended almost at the same spot by the river Thames (fairly close to the Waterloo station) overlooking the west. And, what could you do other than shooting the sunset as it happened. I say, when in a city such as London, always go for the sunset from the Southbank option. And with the English weather featuring non stop puffy clouds, you could capture some amazing sunset moments. But, don’t wait 7  years to share them online. Yes, some of these photos are shared now for the first time, after 7 years.

I was really impressed with the statues of humans at the tops of some buildings, on both sides of the river Thames. As I learned a few seconds ago (again, almost 7 years later), the statues are a part of the Event Horizon  installation by Antony Gormley. Pretty cool.
I find it funny how the majority of my recent posts (ok, two of them) consist of only my old D80 photos which proves no matter of the super kickin’ camera, you still can suffer from photographer’s block. But, I comfort myself with the thought of being brave to post grainy old (processed .jpg only) photos. The world need more of such risks. Haha. God bless and may He gives you patience.

    Such beautiful images! Yes sunsets are always such a beautiful event, I’m always fascinated by them… I live on a sunny country so sunsets is common but to be able to watch them close, like on the beach or just in silence as they disappear behind the buildings? Is always such a magical moment.,.

    These are great! I love how the statue creates a somehow surreal atmosphere against the beautiful sky.
