At last for some hours the sky of London gave me the grace to clean from the clouds and to see some sun and blue sky.I took the photo in motion as the rail passing by through an overhead bridge going to Greenwhich.
London Rail is a directorate of Transport for London (TfL), involved in the relationship with the National Rail network within Greater London, UK. It manages non-tube rail systems in Greater London.
London Rail manages the London Overground (LO), London Trams and Docklands Light Railway (DLR). It will also be responsible for Crossrail. As part of an internal restructure within TfL, it recently merged with the (previously separate) London Underground directorate, bringing all of Greater London local transport services on rails under one division.
The London Overground was established in 2007 when TfL took over control of the former National Rail Silverlink franchise in 2007. It has since taken on more services through a former London Underground line and over other network rail lines. London Rail lets a concession to operate the Overground. Operation is contracted to London Overground Rail Operations (owned by MTR and DB Regio) until 2014/16.
London Trams is responsible only for the Croydon Tram known as Tramlink. Tramlink was set up in 2000 by a private finance initiative. It was bought by TfL in 2008 and has been operated by it since. London Trams has been working on proposals for other tram schemes in west and central London, however as of 2011 all are unfunded or cancelled.
The Docklands Light Railway was established in 1987 and has seen significant expansion since. Its operation is contracted out as a concession to the Serco Group until 2014.There are also other concessionaires who have built and manage extensions.
Crossrail will also be operated as a concession from London Rail.It is planned to initially let the franchise for 7 years from 2014, taking over control of Shenfield metro services from Greater Anglia and then the Maidenhead / Heathrow services from First Great Western in 2016.

πολύ ωραία και ισορροπημένη λήψη από το κινούμενο τρένο, η πληροφορία ότι τράβηξες αυτή τη φωτογραφία εν κινήσει, την κάνει ακόμη πιο εντυπωσιακή και μας δίνει την αίσθηση του ταξιδιού και του φευγαλέου περάσματος από αυτό το μέρος. Εξαιρετικό βάθος και πολύ ενδιαφέρον αστικό τοπίο. Μεγάλη τύχη να βρεις το συγκεκριμένο φως, τις σκιές και τα χρώματα, τη στιγμή που πέρασες από εκεί. Την τύχη αυτή την αξιοποίησες θαυμάσια. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό Σαββατοκύριακο,

This is a charming photo of London from a train on the move.
Loved the colors and the light.
TFS. Have a great weekend.

Hello dear Danos,
Almost a modern photographic artwork, your capture from London. Nice strong sidelight and a quite photogenic sky crowning the scenery. Many interesting notes as well.
TFS and have a nice weekend my friend.
ikeharel (78317) 2014-05-10 0:55
Used a perfect speed on the shutter, and unless written it was taken while the train was moving - I'd never guess it was.
Fine view of the new buildings along the Thames, london skyline was greatly changed since we last been there in 8/1993.
A fine afternoon light and colors.
Enjoy your weekend,
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-05-10 1:01
very well chosen POV and and angle in here. The metal rail frames the image and add some element in the foreground. The colors are very pretty and vivid, I especially like the left side with the mix of green and lilac. Good depth and nicely handled light.
Thanks for sharing
jmdias (68677) 2014-05-10 2:09
nice use of these diagonals sending the eyes to the far high buildings in the horizon. I liked these urban details. TFS.
cornejo (46782) 2014-05-10 3:27
Hello Danos, very good view profudidad of this great city, very well captured in this good and interesting photograph. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth and quality. Nice good job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Hi Danos,a top quality capture despite the place from where you take the pic,a very nice and original view on this renovates corner of London docks,great detail and colors too,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
Kielia (24077) 2014-05-10 4:36
this is really a very interesting sight seen from your unique POV. Your photo gives me a very good idea of this wonderful place. The composition is excellent. My compliments!
jacquest (19047) 2014-05-10 4:39
A nice mix of light and shadow qith a good deepness created by the distance on the water. The sky creates an interesting effect and the point of view is well managed in a well balanced composition.
pierrefonds (71137) 2014-05-10 4:54
The length of the river is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the buildings. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (88317) 2014-05-10 5:20
Une image un peu inédite de la ville de Londres. On ne voit pas souvent ce quartier mais il est superbe. La lumière en diagonale met en valeur ces façades sur le bord de l'eau.
saxo042 (37966) 2014-05-10 5:52
A fine cityscape and a very interesting note. The straight lines of the railing provide a good foreground in this picture.
Silvio1953 (152991) 2014-05-10 6:42
Ciao Danos, lovely composition with beautiful modern architectuires, splendid light, excellent perspective and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
abmdsudi (57720) 2014-05-10 7:44
A wonderful urban scene emphasising on the extensive depth and perspective using the diagonals of the canal and row of high rise buildings to converge naturally in the far end. You managed the light and tones well with good contrast of colours and blue sky, Lovely inclusion of the railing making it a strong foreground base. Simply a pleasing image not only in color rendition but the refine elements well interacted together and so much to look at. It's a fine image with great atmosphere!! Congrats.
Noel_Byrne (33634) 2014-05-10 8:37
This is a wonderful urban view, the depth created from the buildings to the right is beautiful, while off in the distance, we can see tantalizing glimpses of so many of this cities landmark towers. The sky looks wonderful too, perfect mix of clouds and blue sky. Really nicely done, I have never succeeded in taking a good picture from a moving train
Thanks as always
Glint (6171) 2014-05-10 12:50
given that you shot this on a moving train it is very sharp. I like that this blueish colour palette as a touch of red from the café on the right. I also like the distant high points of famous architecture picked out on the skyline.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-05-10 12:57
la tua Londra è particolarmente interessante e fotografata in maniera eccellente.
In questa composizione di grande effetto, nitidezza super e colori e luce di qualità eccellente.
Ciao, buona notte e bnuona domenica
nikkitta (17068) 2014-05-10 13:09
Very informative note presenting this well framed capture of sunny London ( some moments at least)with a creative capture and impressive sky
Like the blue color present on windows and building at the back
Well done, enjoy Sunday
jcpix (13948) 2014-05-10 18:56
Yes indeed, one of the best moments for any photographer is when the dreary skies part ways for the sun to shine through...generally producing some good contrast and inviting atmosphere. You've captured a fine moment here which has, pardon the pun...'enlightened' the scene. :) The break in clouds has allowed for additional color to enhance the overall visual. Plenty of interest in the foreground, but my favorite aspect is being able to see the taller building all the way in the background...great depth in this shot. Very nicely timed and taken. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take care.
omid266 (6750) 2014-05-10 20:37
Really an eye-catching beautiful image , very nice artwork, with excellent POV,beautiful colours of the place,
excellent clarity , nice text, All the BEST and Thanks!
mcmtanyel (29044) 2014-05-10 21:05
Good timing, you released the shutter just at the right time to get a spectacular view. I like the play of light and shade on the right. The purple building on the left stands out cheerfully. Excellent cityscape
fabbs99 (17179) 2014-05-10 23:59
Beautiful shot.Nice colors and sharpness.Excellent POV.TFS.
kato (11630) 2014-05-11 3:08
You're capturing well this cityscape from rail by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the modern buildings and the calm canal in waterfront. I can see high buildings in the distance. The entire color is balanced and harmonized beautifully. And, the clouds in the sky draws out a good impact.
fds (9569) 2014-05-11 6:20
dear friend danos another very interested image and postcard from London under the very beautiful sky with clouds
i would visit london next years

eldancer1 (36343) 2014-05-11 7:40

Intéressante note et image, j'aime le POV, la lumière et les couleurs sont très belle, très jolie présentation
PaulVDV (32641) 2014-05-11 12:12
Truly a beautiful and attractive urban view from London with a good contrast between the darker and the well lit parts, an excellent depth and beautiful attractive colours.
The clouds and the blue parts in the sky make a splendid background.
Best regards, Paul
adramad (49544) 2014-05-11 15:15
A very original and magnificent view, with the added value of being captured, moving from the train, an original skyline of the new neighborhoods of the big city, with a beautiful sky that is a good bonus.
A great photo, beautiful natural colors, bright light and excellent clarity.
Happy start to the week.
All the best.

Δάνο, έμεινα λίγο πίσω στην επίσκεψη μου στο ΤΕ...εχω πολλή δουλειά αλλά πάντα θέλω να κάνω ενα διαλλειμα και να ταξιδεύω στον κόσμο...
μια ομορφη παρουσίαση και εκπληκτική ματιά, τα χρώματα και οι αντιθέσεις ειναι μεγαλοπρεπή θα έλεγα....
καλη σου μερα
UlfE (14641) 2014-05-12 10:49
You made perfect use of that it brightened up for a moment and that there was some sunshine. As an extra bonus there were also som beautiful clouds in the sky. The fence is a fine lead in to the scene and really like your inclusion of the the buildings on the left hand side. TFS and have a nice week!
Fis2 (106408) 2014-05-12 11:00
Interesting view, curious place.
I like frame and colors.
Photo has climate.

Geia sou Danos
Many compliments for showing a rare sunlit London!!
Your picture appears well balanced by the small yellow building at left, compared to those bigger constructions at right of canal.
Instructive note about the 'spider web' of railroads!Se xereto.
PiotrF (22898) 2014-05-12 13:59
Great view of nice place, lovely composition with beautiful perspective, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful colors
geoant68 (331) 2014-05-13 13:28
εξαιρετική φωτογραφία εν κινήσει του αστικού πειβάλλοντος των πειχώων του Λονδίνου,με το φως να έχει βοηθήσει στην εκληκτική ζωντάνια των χωμάτων.Η ποιότητα της φωτογραφίας είναι αξιοπρόσεκτη,
pili51 (1853) 2014-05-14 13:01
I admire the good balance between the global light in the urban landscape, and the dark areas in foreground. You've managed skillfully the exposure. This view on the city is beautiful, the image is very deep, and the mixture of architecture and water provide a nice graphical effect, and it creates a splendid composition as well.
dip (23892) 2014-05-19 12:42
Γεια σου Δάνο,
πολύ καλή η καθαρότητα και η ευκρίνεια της φωτογραφίας,παρ'όλο που την τράβηξες μέσα από το κινούμενο τραίνο,στο βάθος διακρίνονται και τα κτίρια της τελευταίας νυχτερινής σου φωτογραφίας!
Ο καιρός εδώ είναι πολύ καλός,όλη μέρα ήλιο και 23 βαθμούς,αλλά ξέρεις πόσο γρήγορα αλλάζει ο καιρός εδω πάνω...
Angshu (56760) 2014-05-29 21:27
You managed a good picture through the windows of the train. Light playing with the shadows and part patch of the blue sky makes this interesting. Well done!
Have a good WE
berek (50508) 2014-10-17 22:33
A unusual image of the city of London.i havent seen this area but it is superb. Light diagonal highlights the facades on the waterfront. Have anice weekend.
