‘Your favourite view’ was a photography competition we ran to discover entrants’ favourite views in London, and the story behind why they valued these views the most.
Take a look at the excellent entries below!
This was taken from the top of Greenwich Park, next to the Royal Observatory. I love this view because the skyline embodies LONDON and everything I love about it. Each building has memories I have enjoyed with family...
Viewing at the top of the Shard with my wife and daughter, dating my wife at the Gherkin, my daughter's first movie at the O2! London has everything for everyone and that's why I love it.
This photo means so much to me, because after several years of difficulty walking due to a number of health problems, this week I finally felt well enough to join my friend on a visit to Greenwich Village, where we had a lovely walk around the park and climbed the hill in order to enjoy this breath-taking view of London.
I'm a wheelchair user and my favourite view is the Troudos Mountains in Cyprus and the waterfalls. It takes a mighty effort to get there. I caught sight of my little feet in the picture I thought spoilt the wonderful scenery... But then I thought 'no! It says I made it'. I look at this view and the thunderous sound of the water comes back to mind and the how magnificent the and majestic the scenery was. Picture Memories for life!
This was taken at Hunstanton
My Auntie & cousin took me there for the day as I had never been there and Wow, we were b,Essex with fantastic weather, lovely people, scenery, seaside, shops, and we went to the Lavender Fields before making our way to Hunstanton and we found a lovely cafe where this photo was taken overlooking the water, what a end to a truly happy, anxious and panic free day for me so lucky,
A beautiful view of the Causeway linking St. Lucia to Pigeon Island. As St. Lucia has the Caribbean Sea on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, this is where you can see both the Caribbean which is calm and the Atlantic which can be quite rough. This island has so much history having been fought over by the French and English. It is also beautiful to look at and calming
This view means the world to me, it' a place I could rarely be. I worked far away for Queen and country, with an aching heart for my home county. Seven long years to come home and see, the sun the sand the crashing sea. And now back here I will never leave, Northumberland is in my soul it is the air I breath.
