Magical Moments – London Picture of the Day

Magical Moments – London Picture of the Day

Picture of the Day was captured during my wee wander from Paddington Basin to Primrose Hill which I enjoyed at the weekend. I saved my favourite picture from that adventure especially for today!

The sun was setting in the distance…it wasn’t the best sunset I have ever seen, but there was something magical about the moment. The sky looked stunning – the clouds, the blue sky and the bright sunshine poking through with the reflections on the calm water of Regents Canal combined to create a beautiful picture. All I had to do was press the button and take the picture!

As I walked past the Italian Restaurant that overlooked the Canal, which had a perfect view of  today’s featured picture I was very tempted to buy something to eat and sit in their open air terrace and enjoy the view. However I was a man on a mission…and I had barely begun my walk.

Magical Moments – London Picture of the Day

Enjoying moments such as captured in today’s Picture of the Day, reminds me that sometimes the simple things in life are the best. I know people head to Oxford Street and Regent Street in their masses to look in amazement at the Christmas lights…yet for me watching the sun light up the sky and the wondrous picture it creates is a far greater buzz…


  1. Amazing photograph indeed. I do agree with you that the simple things in life are the very best. Lots of folks miss so much around them because they are searching for something they probably will never attain.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  2. Comedy Plus, it was a beautiful moment to witness, and it gave me a good feeling watching it…
