Beauty at the Barrier
The man-made structure defends the capital from floods, while the flowers perhaps have less practical uses. But they are both beautiful and photogenic, in very different ways.
The Thames Barrier sits sturdily in a corner of south-east London, a might of engineering which some might consider an unnatural blot on the riverscape.
But next to the Barrier, a wonderfully sculpted garden sits, and is full of blooms and nature’s colourful bounty.
More photographs will be published here soon. In the meantime, which of these beauties do you prefer?
