A visit to Zero

DSC 6922 - A visit to Zero

I made a visit to Greenwich today, the first for six years since the GDIF festival 2011. So much’s changed, the Cutty Sark in her new guise, different pier buildings, and the Royal Naval College now a full public venue. I took many pictures as usual, however I decided tonight’s post would focus on that classic tourist spot – the Royal Observatory, sited at zero/0 in terms of longitude.

Here are some pictures from today taken with my Nikon D300 and Tokina 12-14. Enjoy 🙂
