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.

I had a nice walk on Saturday afternoon along the Thames on Southbank and had to take another panorama from the 7th floor restaurant in the Tate Modern. The full resolution pano, which I had to dramatically reduce in size for the web shows so much detail. Amazing what a crowded place London is.View from the Tate Modern - 7th floor

We took a lovely walk in the sunshine yesterday afternoon strolling along the riverbed of the Thames. Amazing what we found: From pottery to bones that looked very much like the femur of a human being to a very well kept old claypipe.
