I went to London on Saturday morning to take Photos. I blame Ferg, it was all his idea! Anyway I got up a 3am; I was meant to get up at 3:30am but woke up at 3am and had no chance of getting back to sleep. I drove to Ferg’s for 4:30 and then he drove on to Royal Victoria Docks (Excel London) for sunrise – 6:59am. I think we were there about 6:45am
The sunrise was dissapointing mainly because of conditions and location, Victoria docks is not as good a location as it appeared to have been. However the light was good for taking photos. We then spent the rest of the day taking photos around Canary Wharf and Bank.
Here are some of the pictures, click for bigger views…

I took this while on my way to work yesterday…
This New Forest tree sits on a road bend at the top of a dip and has little else around it. It has pride of place at one of the highest points in the New Forest and you can view it almost in isolation on a full 360 panoramic. Many days I have watched the sunrise and sunset behind this tree, it’s just a matter of direction.
Apparently the area gets its name from the fact it was used as a mass grave during the second world war… I don’t know if this is true or not, just picked it up from a partial accademic paper on the net!

I bobbed down to Port Solent to take a few pictures yesterday after work.

As I was about to get out of my car at work, I noticed this Green Woodpecker on the bank on the opposite side of the road… I managed to grab these pictures from within my car, window down, paparazzi style!
