After doing a hospital visit at Tommy’s yesterday afternoon, I walked back across Westminster bridge to catch the tube – and the sunset was truly spectacular. So couldn’t resist a couple of snaps – not great image quality as it was with a phone but still impressionistic

At this point, we could do much worse than to quote that old softy, Wordsworth…

UPON WESTMINSTER BRIDGE
William Wordsworth

EARTH has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth like a garment wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour valley, rock, or hill;
Ne’er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!
