Good morning from a wet London...what a storm we had at 1.30 am this morning

A huge thank you to you all fro your continued support and especially to Jukka for his UA...so chuffed...

I met up with Lillian, Dave and Moira yesterday for a long and exciting walk along the Thames....it was a fun day and was so happy to finally meet some epz members...GrinGrin

Todays image was taken next to the London eye...they had wonderful gardens their with a country mix of flowers...very pretty...I have lots more London images to share over the next few days just had no time to process them.

We are off to St Petersburg in Russia now so will only be online again this evening...so excited
Have a great day...GrinGrin

I now have that storm you had earlier, it woke me from my slumber; it's quite spectacular.

Is that a paper poppy or something else, you know me and flowers, love them, know absolutely nothing about them. Red is not an easy colour to photograph, so a big well done on that one, great DOF.
