The Penultimate One...

By Jasper87  
... and for those that have viewed the previous ones, the next and last (should I have written ultimate Smile) will be no surprise.

I avoided the trap of dropping down off Hammersmith Bridge into the Blue Anchor! Instead I went downstream to get this silhouette against the last of the sun. It probably wouldn't have made the last selection had those bridge lights not been on.

Iso100, f13, 1/30sec, @17mm. Tripod & remote. Muddy feet.

penultimate you say, hmm don't think we get them up here Dave! great silhouettes and the wee redish glow on the water Dave finishes it off very nicely one wee point if I may make so bold IMHO there are two wee reflection on the water to the left which catch the eye maybe clone them out

Gorgeous dusk shot but I am bewildered by your comment,

"I avoided the trap of dropping down off Hammersmith Bridge into the Blue Anchor!" Why? You could have taken all your shots and then gone into The Blue Anchor!

Sure it's not the anti-penultimate, Dave?
Taken with a bridge camera?Tongue

You are right, it is the lights that raise this to a higher level, not that it would have been bad without...
Worth postponing the trip to the Blue Anchor.
