Lambeth Bridge at Twilight

11 Mar

Lambeth, London
27 September 2009; 1931 Hours
[Canon EOS 5D Mark 2 | ISO 400 | 16 mm | 2.0 seconds | F/6.3]

Lambeth Bridge is a road traffic and footbridge crossing the River Thames in an east-west direction in central London, England; the river flows north at the crossing point. Downstream, the next bridge is Westminster Bridge; upstream the next is Vauxhall Bridge.

The most conspicuous colour in the bridge’s paint scheme is red, the same colour as the leather benches in the House of Lords which is at the southern end of the Palace of Westminster nearest the bridge. This is in contrast to Westminster Bridge which is predominantly green, the same colour as the benches in the House of Commons at the northern end of the Houses of Parliament.

    Very nice picture.
    From what I’ve been reading from this side of the pond, there’s some kind of new anti photography law in UK that can get you arrested for pictures like this. Can that possibly be true?

      We have some overzealous police officers and I have been stopped and searched twice in this area of London under suspicion of Terrorism but there is no law against photographing bridges or any other London landmark.
