Just over the River Thames lies what is now known as "O2" ~ it was better known as the Millennium Dome which was a spectacular waste of public money.

Hiya Nick,

I thought they demolished this dome long ago as it was such a failure. Anyway that red fencing is not doing any justice here, you needed to close in on the dome here where all the details are other wise good shot.Just my thought. Manoo

Mira Paskota ~~ Hello dearest Mira maybe you could land your balloon near here next summer :) ~ Thanks for your thoughtful appraisal of this shot and I agree with you too :)

Magic10 (^_^) ~~ Ah but Manoo without the red fencing you would not get the shadows and if I just concentrated on the mushroom, you would not get to see the lock either ~ there are dozens of large full frame dome shots :) Mira has put her finger on it:)

Most friendly greetings to you both from nick
