Another London landmark.
This is the Prince Albert (Queen Victoria Consort) Memorial in Hyde Park (strictly speaking, Kensington Gardens), London.
It is located opposite the Royal Albert Hall (which is another great London icon) dedicated to Prince Albert, too.
Prince Albert was German (do not mention the war, though, we are all friends now) but he brought the Christmas tree to the British, organized the Great Exhibition in 1851, and died 10 years later.
The memorial was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, the famous Victorian architect. His sons and the grandson were prominent architects, too (his grandson, Giles Gilbert Scott, designed Battersea Power Station, Bankside Power Station, which is the Tate Modern now, Waterloo Bridge, and the red telephone box).
I sharpened the photograph up to please TE members.

Hello Marcin, very nice image here. Very courageous to shoot against the sun. Good angle on the shot, usually these monumants are so big and you have to get some distance from them. Amazing sky there.

That is an impressive monument, and you chose a beautiful point of view to display it> The light is perfect, and the inclusion of the people allows us to see the scale of this massive monument! Really well seen and captured.
All the best
