lovelondonscenes 152 – From Albert Bridge to Hammersmith along the Thames

Last Sunday was a beautiful, crisp, sunny day, and I took the opportunity for a stroll along the river from Albert Bridge near Battersea Park to my old favourite, Hammersmith. I wanted to time it so I caught the sunset down by the Old Ship in Hammersmith, where the river bends and you get a fantastic view looking west. I didn’t quite get there in time, as I spent a lot of time taking photos, but got some lovely shots just as I approached Hammersmith, along Fulham Reach.

Here’s a selection – some with my Canon Power Shot SX60 HS, a “hybrid” with a great zoom; others with the iPhone 8, which captures the colours nicely, I find. Well, that’s as technical as I’ll ever get, so on with the pictures…

Finished with a pint of London Pride in the Blue Boat, near where I took the last photo, and then home!
