I was on a regular flight to London in the "Holding Pattern" when we were treated with this outstanding view.

It was the picture made me start to upload to Panoramio. I shouldn't keep pictures like this just to myself. I think London looks good on it while and I was in the right place at the right time.

Cheers, Gabe

Kedves Marilyn!

A családi béke érdekében a szabadság felét MO-n a másik felét a UK-ban töltöttük. Londoni leszállásunk elött várni kellett, kb 15 percet kőröztünk a város fölött, csinálhattam ezeket a képeket.

Üdvözlet Port Moody-ból: Gábor

I think this is a wonderful image, but may I ask, what are the 2 spots of light in the top right corner? when you zoom in there is one slightly larger one just to the left and slight above St pauls, and the other is above that in the distance and smaller? Is it light reflection? Brilliant picture, thanks for sharing it.

Gabor Retei on May 28, 2010

stinkyholly81, you are right, what you see is light reflecting from some glass surface. I have noted them on some other pictures as well from the same set!

I specially appreciate your comment as you had to sign up for Panoramio, just to send this note!

Best wishes from Vancouver, B.C. Canada, Gabe
