The Walk in Pictures 1066 Harold’s Way, Walk 1
On the approach to Charing Cross Station, it is worth taking the time to cross the road and walk part way over the Hungerford footbridge.
There is a wonderful view along to Westminster from there and little has changed since Monet painted his ‘The Thames below Westminster’ in 1871– it is good for a photograph.
My walk was in bright sunlight on a summer’s day whereas Monet showed the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Bridge on a misty spring day. They are both contrasted with the a jetty in the foreground that casts broken shadows on the river and new foliage on the trees of the Embankment to the right.
