Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

A River Runs Through It
Our Picture This! assignment for this month is “A River Runs Through It,” and rather than request idyllic scenes of trout fishing in America, we’re looking for the waterways that cut through, and in many cases, define a great city. It could be the East River, the Seine, the Thames, or even the Mississippi as it moves on down to the Delta through the great American Midwest. The images can be post card pretty or truly gritty, depending on your take on the river that might run through your town.

This photo was made in late afternoon across the Thames in London toward the Parliament Buildings, an iconic scene of London that has been captured ever since folks could record images with a camera. It was shot with a Canon PowerShot G9 with an exposure of f/7.1 at 1/1250 sec at ISO 200. Some warmth was added in post-processing.
