One of the real touristy things we did in London and really enjoyed.
Under the Bridge
This is a fun view of Big Ben in London from the walkway that goes under the Westminster Bridge.
On of the London's Markets in the financial district which was the location for diagon alley in the Harry Potter movies.
Old and New
The London Egg is one of the famous modern buildings in the financial district. I love this image with the Egg as a background for some of London's historic buildings.
Lloyds of London 1
I love abstract architectural buildings and the Lloyds of London in the financial district of London is great. It looks like all the utilities are on the outside of the building.
Lloyds of London 2
I love abstract architectural buildings and the Lloyds of London in the financial district of London is great. It looks like all the utilities are on the outside of the building. It looks great in black and white on a cloudy day.
St. Clement Danes Church
St. Clement Danes Church. This church was built in the 9th Century when the Danes ruled part of England. It is currently an Anglican Church and was rebuilt in 1953 after being distroyed during WWII.
Out of the Underground
This is a very long escalator from the London "tube" to the surface.
Tate Britian Members' Stairway
I love circular stairways, and right across the Thames River from our London Hotel was the Tate Britian Museum with 3 circular stairways. This was my favorite.
"All Fall Down"
Stonehendge is one of those places that you have seen hundreds of photos of, but seeing it in person was special. The wonderful cloudy British skies were perfect for this image.
The Royal Crescent
This set of 30 attached Georgian houses in Bath was amazing. Built in the 18th Century for the rich to vacation in Bath. The wonderful cloudy British skies made this image one of my favorites.
You have to love the cloudy sky that make this image special. One of only 4 bridges in the world that are completely covered by shops and homes.
I love the soaring architecture of the English cathedrals, and the fan vaulting of the Bath Cathedral ceiling is amazing. This image was made by combining 3 seperate exposures.
It doesn't get any better than this in a small fishing village along the southeast English coast.
Ley Arms Pub
Dinner at an old English Pub (begun in 1290), and this one came complete with ghost stories.
Saint Andrew Kenn Parish
Built in the 13th Century and still a functioning church. The church was neat, but I love cemeteries.
The Saint Andrew Kenn Parish
Built in the 13th Century and still a functioning church. Originally a Catholic Parish. The pews and "rood" screen dates from the 16th Century.
This is the location of Harry Potter's train Bridge in Scotland.
Turn around from the Glenfinnan Viaduct and you see this beautiful Loch. I'll never complain about the clounds or overcast in England as it makes for beautiful pictures.
Taken from the roof of a building across the street from the castle removed the distracting street foreground. The sun is getting ready to set and gives "golden" light.
I love the view from the tops of buildings as you see things in entirely new ways. I felt like Mary Poppins.
The colors of the aging Rosslyn Chapel were amazing. Again the diffused light from a cloudy sky made this image special. The "fame" from being a location in the DaVinci Code movie has generated tourist dollars for restoration.
York Shambles at 6 am.
If you want to photograph the narrow streets of the Shambles in York without people you need to get up before the other tourists.
