LONDON: Greenwich Peninsula

Surrounded by water on three sides it has the feel of an island:

The area is dominated by the o2 Dome, now the most popular venue in the world:

The peninsula has a wonderful backdrop of the Canary Wharf skyline:

A traditional English pub with a great beer garden lies at the centre of the peninsula:

Wonderful shots, especially the ones of Canary Wharf at sunset with the waterlogged ground . Look forward to more!

Cheers guys!

In the foreground lie the colourful buildings of the Greenwich Millennium Village, located at the southern side of the peninsula. In between the meandering river Thames the Canary Wharf cluster and then the City cluster are visible:
