After nearly two months of rain every day, Mother Nature decided to finally allow us to enjoy the splendour of Spring; yes the sun came out to play this weekend and so did I with my camera! Since it was such a glorious day on Saturday, I decided to head out to some of London’s most beautiful Royal Parks and got some great shots of our little piece of Heaven smack bang in the middle of one of the world’s busiest cities.
Both Hyde Park and Green Park are classified as two of the eight Royal Parks frequented by millions of Londoners and tourists each year. The 5,000 acres of historic parkland provide exceptional opportunities for enjoyment, exploration and healthy living in the heart of our beautiful capital. Head out to one of these on a sunny day and you are bound to see scenes of lazy Summer picnics, people running around and tumbling about playing what they call ‘sport’, sometimes scheduled top quality entertainment, fantastic community and education projects and of course loads of photographers. If it’s history and architecture you’re after, the Parks have hundreds of buildings, statues, and memorials, giving a fascinating insight into London’s heritage. The Royal Parks manages these spaces and almost everything in them. This is a simple yet meaningful thank you to the people who take so much care and put in all the time and effort to look after and conserve the Parks to ensure future generations can enjoy them too.
Here are just some of the photographs I took yesterday. (Click on images to see full size)
