I had the pleasure to go on a helicopter sightseeing tour of London yesterday with the London Helicopter centre in Redhill Surrey. The trip was taken with a AS 350 Squirrel. With 140 mph top speed we reached London in just a few minutes to fly along the River Thames giving me some opportunities to make use of my camera. The weather could have been better, as most of central London was covered in mist, covering the glass of the helicopter. However I still managed to get some quite nice shots of famous locations such as Battersea Power Station, Houses of Parliament, London Eye and the City of London with its skyscrapers. I have added a few images to my galleries.
London in Snow
Today was definitely a very special day for me . I was extremely excited when I got up in the morning at 7am to walk to work today, as it was quite forseeable that London’s public transport will not be able to keep up with the extreme weather conditions. The atmosphere amongst the people on the streets gave today the feeling of a bank holiday or the biggest photo competition London has ever seen. Nearly everyone, including myself was armed with a camera to capture the rare sight of approx 25-30 cm of snow. Below is one of my photos of the music pavilion in Battersea Park. I took quite a lot of photographs, so it might take a few days to put them online, please be patient.
