You have certainly all heard of Greenwich in London United Kingdom. Usually in the context of the zero meridian or the time zones. Some of you may already remember my photos from the Greenwich Promenade in my home district Berlin-Tegel. Both districts are twinned (but I didn’t find any mention of my district over there…). But only a few have actually visited Greenwich – it’s not really on the list of things to do on a weekend trip to London.
On Google+, however, I was urged to pay Greenwich a visit. From a hill, you supposedly have a great view over the old university and the new skyline in the docklands. But unfortunately, no one could tell me that the park closes in the evening. So I stood in front of the locked gates and had to resign from pictures of the sunset – which fortunately wasn’t too great anyways.
As chance would have it, we lost our way when we went up the hill. Instead, we directly passed the university and found this beautiful spot. It’s almost what I had in mind, so we came back there to capture this wonderful afterglow.
