Battersea Power at Dusk

By colmar  

Taken from the Ashford to London Victoria train as it approaches Vic, Mari thought this may be worth capturing as the sun almost disappears from the sky the bulk of Battersea Power Station silhouetted , taken at around 35 mph.

I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Euro Views,and indeed a few other images , all votes and positive comment that can encourage and improve are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Good shot Colin. Looks just as grand by night as by day.
I used to live round the corner from here, when i was a boy in the 70's my mates and i would sneak into the grounds and play on the railway where they used to haul the coal in by train. Often we would get chased off by the security guard but never got caught, or hurt for that matter! Great childhood memories though.
Well done and thanks for sharing this one.
Regards Ricky.

Good morning, Colin and Mari,
Even for a Scot who has seen this building only once from the train from Waterloo to Godalming, its outline is immediately recognisable in this dramatic shot. Silhouetted as it is against the last light of day, it makes quite a statement, and Mari has done so well to capture it so sharply from her moving viewpoint.
Regards to both, Ronnie.

Great shot, Colin, of a building that immediately conveys a sense of all that is London. Battersea Power Station is as iconic as Tower Bridge, Buck House, and in many cases, more so.

IMHO, you could have taken this image to an even higher level by cloning out the scaffolding on the left-most stack. But that's a mere detail. Very well captured and nicely presented. Bob
