This week’s Sunday Post from Jake Sprinter is about favourite places.
Just a few days ago I posted my favourite images for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, including a beautifully red summer sunset, taken from my favourite location – my balcony, with views of the River Thames and towards central London. My balcony is a place where I have taken many many photos. Don’t panic, I haven’t uploaded all of them.
In summer there are often river events and races, making the Thames a hive of activity.
As the temperatures cool and autumn sets in, the river is much less busy.
In winter time the river gets very quiet as everyone retreats indoors.As the spring weather becomes more favourable there are more and more tourist boats coming past every day.
We get to see some fantastic sunsets from the balcony.
Sometimes visitors try to sneak past quietly.
Other visitors can’t help but announce their arrival and can awaken you from sleep at any hour.Where is your favourite spot?
No wonder your balcony is a favourite spot: you can see a lot happening from there
Yes, it can get very busy but I enjoy watching what is happening.
Great images Georgia ,I really love your favorite spot thanks for sharing 🙂
Thanks Jake and thanks for visiting again 🙂
Wonderful views from your balcony 🙂
Why thank you. This is one reason why we are definitely not going to move.
These are cool shots!!! Thanks so much for playing along!
Thanks Cee and thanks for your encouragement.
Wonderful, beautiful series of your favorite spot!
Thanks so much Amy.
How wonderful to be able to see all this from your balcony. Great pics. 🙂
Yes I love it.
I am disorientated. Both the Shard and the Gherkin look as though they are on the same side of the river, but they aren’t… And if I can see both of those, why can’t I see St Paul’s?
We are near Canary Wharf, but around the bend in the river, so effectively south-east of central London. St Paul’s isn’t as tall as the Shard or the Gherkin (or perhaps it is further away from us as the crow flies) so it isn’t as obvious but if you look closely in my spring photo, the dome is pretty much right in the centre.
What a wonderful scene to look out on each day. Everyday brings new surprises. Love it.
It sure does, and I absolutely love it.
what a great post Georgia…that sunset is breathtaking and I loved being walked through the year
Aw thanks Jo. I know, we are often running out to the balcony with our cameras to snap a sunset but that one was really cool with the cloud formations that day.
it sure was…and you can NEVER get too many beautiful sunsets.
That sunset! Whoa! Amazing.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. 🙂 gemma
Yes it was amazing, brilliant clouds helped with the effect. I haven’t seen that before, or since actually but we often get some lovely colours. Thanks for visiting Gemma
I’m definitely traveling to England someday! What a wonderful favorite spot!
Yes, definitely come visit. There is lots to see and do in England.
If I had your balcony on the Thames, that would be my favorite spot, too. How wonderful, and what gorgeous pics you can get from there (as the others have said, that sunset is stunning). Mahalo (thank you in Hawaiian) for following my blog. I’m reciprocating with pleasure.
Mahalo! Thanks for your visit and lovely comment and for following my blog. I really enjoy following yours.
Beautiful photos, and I love to imagine all the history that has sailed past your balcony!
Thanks Naomi, so true. I think James Bond has been past a couple of times too 😉
What a view to have, Georgia. I’d never get anything done!
