This is a view of the Thames looking to the East from Waterloo Bridge. The river is at low tide in this photo, compared to high tide in last week's photo.

Photo Day - 83 - Square Mile over the Thames

A few days after last weeks photo of a Thames oil slick there was a much more scenic day. This photo was taken in front of the Tate Modern looking over the Thames at the "Square Mile". I always appreciate the Thames more at full tide.

The Millennium Bridge is in the foreground with the City of London School on the left of it, with St Paul's Cathedral behind that. Tower 42 and the Gherkin are visible over the right pier of the bridge.

Photo Day - 82 - Thames Oil Slick

A few weeks after returning to London I was crossing the Thames on the Millennium Bridge and spotted this rainbow in the water.

Photo Day - 81 - Christchurch Airport

This was the last photo I took during my April trip to New Zealand. It was taken at the Christchurch International Airport with a view out to the Canterbury Aero Club and the snow capped Southern Alps beyond.

I probably could have cropped a bit more of the runway out of the shot, but I like the message on the gangway, on the bottom left of the photo, too much to cut it out.
