Weekend Reflections 19 - London


All the reflections this week come from the Olympic Park in Stratford, London, the location, of course, of London 2012 that has enthralled us all for the past two weeks with gold medals galore and the high drama of sport....


Strolling around the park sees some superb venues and their reflections, as well as the Gloriana recently seen as part of the Thames Pageant for the Queen's Jubilee...


The BP mirror screen reflections give a good impression of the crowds thronging the Olympic Park, whilst the beautiful gardens and pool below reinforce why the Park has been so highly praised for its landscaping....


And of course at night the venues take on a whole new aura led by Anil Kapoor's Orbit and the stadium itself...


If you didn't manage to get to the Olympic Park in the last two weeks, then make sure you get tickets for the Paralympics which open here on August 29th. More posts on the Olympic Park this week, and more reflections over at Weekend Reflections. Enjoy!!

It has been such an exciting time -- even for us here in the states, so I can only imagine how wonderful it has been for all of you in England at this time! I do love your captures, Catherine!! The very next best thing to being there! Enjoy your weekend!!

You caught lovely reflection overthere ! I just love the red thingy reflecting in the water (night shot)... It would be great to be able to enjoy it in a bigger resolution !
