Blythe Hill (I)

Posted by
Ian Smith (London, United Kingdom) on 19 June 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Not many people know of this small hilltop park in south east London, as its not a place many tourists are likely to visit (found in the middle of 3 suburban council estates). But I think on a late summer's evening, you can enjoy some of the best views in London. (That's Canary Wharf and other tall buildings on the Isle of Dogs on the horizon).

I do not know this place indeed Ian and nevertheless I know a little London. I have to return to it.
Your London in color is very attractive also, even if I am a fan of your black and white. Very beautiful composition here with the background city.

I have never visited Blythe Hill myself and would like to one day. Nicely captured.
