Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

My last posting showed the sunshine reflecting on the windows of some high rise buildings and making them look like gold.

This posting sets that photograph in context. This is a photograph of St. Katherine's Dock, in London. The yachts are berthed in the f/g and, since it is beginning to go dark, the lights have been switched on around the edge of the docks.
In the distance, you can see the tall buildings which were turned to gold. They are in the early stages of catching the sunlight but still look as if they have been touched by King Midas. (If you are unfamiliar with the story, King Midas was given the power of turning everything to gold when he touched it.)

St. Katherine's Dock has been renovated over the last few years and now provides, besides the obvious berths for yachts, lovely eating places, high quality shops and pubs. It has a lovely olde worlde charm and is an enjoyable place to just sit and watch the world go by.

Many thanks for your interest.
Please feel free to offer feedback on any aspect of the photograph. :-)

Hand held.
pp slight crop, sharpened, adj levels, added border and signed.
