My Sunday Photo, A River Cruise on the Thames

I have chatted a bit about the river cruise party I attended at Traverse a couple of weeks ago. Being a sucker for a beautiful view and for me being a real lover of our great city this ticked all the boxes.

I had done a river cruise many years ago, it was a scorching hot day and it was an inside boat. The only way to do one of these cruising in great weather is on top deck with a good camera.

That is exactly what I did for most of the cruise, stood on top deck marvelling at the breathtaking view and how lucky we are to have London as our capital. Of course I did have time to indulge in the odd glass of fizz with all my lovely blogging pals, it would have been rude not, too wouldn’t it?

Top tip, choose your time of day wisely. If you love a magnificent sunset then this is the best way to see one in London, either that or very high up. But the reflection of the water made it all the more special for me.

As we passed the Thames Barrier the light was relaxing beautifully across it, making the exterior almost light up, it was a glorious sight. And as we sailed the river the sun went down, with the evening clouds having an almost spotty effect making the sky appear even more beautiful.

    Gorgeous photos from your river cruise. I love the light on the Thames Barrier and the photo of the Tower of London 🙂

    Love this idea. I’ve done a City Cruise but you’re on the boat with several hundred friends on those, not quite the same thing. Love the Thames Barrier image. I’d love to go past that on a boat. #MySundayPhoto

    I’ve been pondering how to take the juniors to the Thames Barrier and you’ve convinced me that a cruise is the answer #MySundayPhoto

    I’ve been to London over a hundred times over the years but I’ve never ever been on a cruise along the Thames. I really must change that. Your photos are brilliant, really make me want to go!

    Add this to my list of things to do next time I am in London- what wonderful photos!!! I am always looking for the best places to take photos, and clearly the Thames is the place to be!

    It was such a fantastic cruise wasn’t it – perfectly timed for sunset, and the company and drinks made it even better. You certainly went all out to get the photos too 🙂 Thanks for linking up with #citytripping
