I think this was on the day the Red Arrows and the Patrouille de France flew over Buckingham Palace. The clouds that were looming over us all day dispersed just in time for the flyover, leaving a blue sky which helped make the occasion even better.

Sadly I didn’t capture the shot at the perfect time, but I am happy with it nonetheless.

Walking back up the Mall afterwards I could see the clouds retreating. They gave a dramatic effect when taking the below shots of the London Eye.


And again, it was empty of people.


It shows that despite our weather, sometimes luck is on our side!!

  1. Lovely shots! I haven’t been to London for ages (since the London Eye was built!) so I enjoy your pictures a lot.

    1. Oh so there will be a few new additions for you to enjoy once you return! It is a historical city but one that keeps up with the times πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the comments.

    1. Aw thank you! I got down there nice and early to prepare haha, so I am pleased I caught it. And no worries Rebecca, I look forward to uploading the rest πŸ™‚

    1. I hope you can sometime soon πŸ™ it is hard right now with the current restrictions, but I am hoping things ease towards the new year and next year will be back to normal!

  2. I always tried to document the city that I live in at the time because things are always changing. When I visited NYC for the first time in 2008 the World Trade Towers were history.

    1. I can relate to that completely, pictures are like jumping in a time machine and remembering how much a place has changed. I too visited NYC in 2008, I remember there was a hole in the mesh around Ground Zero and I could see through as they were working on the WTC foundations. I would love to go back to see One World Trade Center complete!
