lovelondonscenes 163 – Another Hammersmith sunset

Yesterday I had a couple of beers with my friend Jon E at the Rutland Arms, on the river by Hammersmith Bridge. The sun was beginning to set as we arrived at 6.30 and had slipped behind the trees by the time we moved on. I’ve photographed this scene many times, but I did love the change in colours last night over quite a short space of time. It had been a sunny and windless day and there was a bit of haze. Aka smog, but we won’t worry about that just now.

The photos are in sequence, though it looks like the second should be the first. That’s just a trick of the camera as I zoomed closer to the sun on the second, and it seemed to rise and get smaller!

About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. I’ve written a novel called “The Decision”, a futuristic political thriller, and first of a trilogy. I’m also the author of a book on music since the 1970s called “ I Was There - A Musical Journey” and a volume of poetry about youth, “Growin’ Up - Snapshots/ Fragments”. All available on Amazon and Kindle.

    Good control of the sun. Set the controls .

    I was there, as someone once said, and it was indeed pretty amazing. Not the 16th hole at Kirtlington, mind you – but still special.

    A few glasses at the Rutland and the Black Lion, then a sensational onglet steak at the Carpenter’s Arms. Heaven – Hammersmith style.
