My Sunday Photo – Tide’s Out

London's South Bank Beach Tide Out

The other morning en route to a blogging event I stopped to snap this picture of the beach which appears on the banks of the River Thames when the tide is out. It was so peaceful and reminded me yet again why I love this city so much.

    I think few people appreciate how far the Thames goes out at low tide. Great shot capturing something few people see. In my younger days I once attended a rave on that bit of Thames at low tide! It was awesome! #MySundayPhoto

    I love this beach area, it allows you to capture photos that others don’t get

    Thank you for linking up

      I agree, there are so many cliched shots of London aren’t there? Thank you for hosting.

    I wonder how many people use this beach when the tide is out? Looks like a perfect place for dog walking #MySundayPhoto

      Funnily enough I very rarely see people on there when the tide is out. Access can be a bit shut off at times but I also just think it takes so many people by surprise X

    That’s a beautiful look at London, I so rarely see the tide out like that, I didn’t even know there was beach there.

      It’s fab isn’t it? I have no idea what time the tides run throughout the year so should probably grab a timetable so I can go early one morning and try to get the sunrise too! X

      Thank you so much Jade, yes there’s always something changing in a scene like this X

    So strange to think there’s actually a beach in London!

      Isn’t it just?? I love it so much X

      It really is, it’s incredible how peaceful I find London at times despite being such a big city X

    Hi Lins, I had no idea that the Thames had a beach! I’m trying to imagine what it must be like walking along a beach in the City! I love the skyline in your photo.

      You know it was years of living here before I realised too! I think most people figure the Thames isn’t tidal, it’s really beautiful down there when the tide’s out. Thanks so much for stopping by X
