UK Cruise 2013
We might think that photos of the usual tourist locations such as those found in London are ‘overdone’ – we have seen them so many times before. Why bother taking more photos of ‘Big Ben’ in London for example – well, all I can say is, just try to stand in front of this iconic structure with a camera and see if you can resist the urge to take just one shot of it. I have been back to London many times and I can’t resist it.
London is steeped in history that has, in some way, affected almost all corners of the globe and the sights of London remind us of a time when opulence in architectural design flourished without remorse.
This last trip to ‘old blighty’ was not just to see London however, we were doing a cruise of the UK and London (after a few days earlier in Dubai) was just the initial stage of our journey.
So most of the shots in this section of my blog below are of London and the other pics will show some of the other ports and surrounds that we visited on our UK cruise which ended in Amsterdam.
For those that are interested – these Photos were taken with my new full frame camera – the Canon 5D MKIII.
Note the ‘learner’ (L Plate) in the fast lane?
