When returning home each evening from the Borough, we usually cross London Bridge. We have seen it in many different sorts of weather.
On Monday, the weather was overcast and the top of the (still unfinished) Shard was, for once, discreetly veiled in mist. It is strange to think that when those top floors are occupied at some future date, there will be times when the occupants will not be able to see out because of cloud or mist pressing close about the top of the building.
This evening, in contrast, the sky was clear (which probably means a cold night) and we caught this view of the sinking sun across the Thames and the buildings along Bankside. The gulls were enjoying their evening fly-around, so high up that they appear as little more than black dots against the sky. You may also spot an aeroplane close to the top edge, just to the right of the dark shred of cloud.
Downriver, to the east, the sky had a softer, darker glow, but still reflected the colour of the sunset. All being well, this means a fine day tomorrow.
As for us, irresistibly drawn as to a magnet, we entered the nearby cafe and ordered coffee and cake before continuing our journey home!
