Westminster Bridge which crosses the River Thames in London links Westminster to Lambeth. It is green, matching the colours of the seats in the nearby House of Commons. In contrast, the red colour of Lambeth Bridge matched the seats of the House of Lords.
To reach Westminster Bridge, take the tube to Westminster. The bridge is outside the station. Walk onto the bridge and you will be amazed by the views. Look East and you have the London Eye, County Hall and the South Bank before you. Look East for fabulous views of the houses of parliament. Don’t expect to be alone though. This is one of the most popular tourist spots in London. Visit the next bridges along in each directions for views of Westminster Bridge linking these London landmarks.
The first is a classic image showing the Westminster Bridge with Big Ben in the background at sunset. I like the way the evening light picks out the bridge on the right of the shot.
The second shows Westminster Bridge beneath dramatic clouds on an autumn afternoon. The contrasting colours worked very well.
The third has an almost a dickensian feel. Photographed on a foggy day in the winter this photograph is unusual as the background to the bridge is lost in the fog.
