Photo You Must Sea – Iconic Battersea Power Station In London

I have said it before and I will say it again, London, England the capital of Cool is a fantastic city for wandering around taking pictures. It doesn’t matter what time of the day or what part of the city your in, you will find plenty of amazing photo opportunities. All you have to do is  just  open your eyes and mind and the city will reveal itself to you.

I have probably taken thousands of pictures since I arrived in London in February, some of them good, some of them not so good and one or two that just hit it on the nail. They are the stuff that wet dreams are made of.

One of my favourite pics, which I took a few weeks back, was taken during one of my infamous night time walks along the River Thames. It is of course  a picture of one of London’s most iconic landmarks, Battersea Power Station.

Battersea Power Station is a building that during its working life, truly fucked up the environment and peoples health with all the shit that it pumped into the air. However now that it is a semi derelict ruin it is a building of true beauty, well it is from a distance, when you are standing looking at it from the opposite side of the river.

I have walked past Battersea Power Station a number of times, both during the day and at night and I find it a captivating building to look at. On this particular night, when I took my must see photo, well it is in my mind! It was a full moon, the laser lights were blasting out from the building and the former coal fired power plant never looked so good. It was all lit up beautifully and the reflection of the building on the River Thames provided the makings  of an  inspiring looking picture.

In fact I will go as far as to say that  I have never witnessed Battersea Power Station looking so cool. Pink Floyd eat your heart out!
