I was wandering along the north side of the Thames a couple of days ago and thought I'd try a few new angles of The London Eye, a very much photographed icon in London. Most shots of the Eye tend to be of the whole thing, of pods from below, or pods taken from inside other pods - have a look on Flickr and this is pretty much what a search will give you. I wanted to capture a close-up of some pods., so I pulled out the wonderful 70-200mm. I really liked this angle, taken from directly across the river. It was about 2.30pm and the light was a bit bright.
