Ta BM....great photos of London.

By the way, do any of you what city this is ? When I first saw it, it reminded of somewhere in Bavaria.

Lovely pics. I like it when I fly in to London and see the Thames winding through the capital.

Apart from St Paul's, everything in that picture is only about 7 years old. It's also one of the biggest potential terrorist targets in the whole of London.
