    #2 is my favourite. I don't remember a big wheel in Hyde Park!. Looks like the Eye's little brother.

    Couldn't get to Chiswick or Barnes could you? (bit homesick after seeing those) lol :)

    Nice pics!.. Went to that winter wonderland thing last Saturday arvo.... can't stand the cold and it getting dark so early here in london.

    Was walking around with my beater 350D and 50mm 1.8, took about 3 shots until the cold and the crowds got to me. If you are going it's probably best to go during the weekday after work.. make sure you get some hot mulled wine to keep you warm.

    Wozzajeep.. I'm working in chiwsick at the moment.. pretty part of town near the Barley Mow Centre. If I get off my lazy streak I may capture some piccies for you.

    Thanks, I've been finding it more and more difficult to get out and take photo witht the weather but last weekend it was nice and sunny albeit cold.

    Went down to the WW after work about 2 weeks ago. but like yourself froze after about 30mins! I have a new 24-70 f2.8 to test out so i might take that down sometime this week.

    We're back into that time (in London) of year where the horrid grey's and drizzle seem to have parted and its bright, blue and sunny (albeit deadly cold at the same time).

    If only I get some time off work during the daylight hours to get some shots..

    I love the shot over hyde park, I work just around the corner from there.

    I obviously missed the only decent day in London in about 3 months. Damned overindulgence ;)

    Also, do you guys know any decent camera stores in London besides the standard Jessops/Tottenham Ct Rd fare? Looking to buy a dslr setup soon and not sure where to head..

    I'd say Tottenham Ct Road for Second Hand variety and accessories (tripods, filters, flashes), but new gear probably ordered online or through Jessops

    i sent grill a pm about it, but have a look at Camera Price buster it is a relatively good price comparison site and takes into account shipping and discount codes.
