Wanderlust Wednesday: The View From Waterloo Bridge
There are 33 bridges between Teddington and the open sea. The first is in Richmond and the last is the Dartford Bridge (absolute nightmare at rush hour) really close to where I grew up! A lot of the well known bridges such as Tower Bridge, London Bridge, and Waterloo Bridge are of course in central London. If you’ve ever walked across any bridge in London I’m sure you were greeted with a fantastic view of the iconic cityscape built around the River Thames. I have many photos of these different views and am sure I will continue to capture more. I’d love to eventually include all of these views in my Wanderlust Wednesday posts!
Last weekend whilst wandering around I happened to walk over Waterloo Bridge just as the sun was setting. I spend a lot of time in the city and this was possibly the best sunset I have seen in London yet. The sky turned pink, golden, and blue all at the same time and passers by were tempted into stopping to capture the picture perfect moment. It didn’t last long; as the sun went down the skies returned to their usual blue (still can’t complain) and it got dark rather quickly. The train into central London had been delayed by thirty minutes which admittedly at the time in my angry state I was very displeased, however if it had been earlier I would have missed my opportunity to capture these photos.
Waterloo Bridge is close to Bankside and Embankment, and can be found between the Golden Jubilee Bridges and Blackfiars Bridge.
