If it’s not too immodest to say so, I was rather proud of the picture I took last night of sunset over South London:
So imagine my surprise when I saw this picture in Guardian.co.uk’s photographic roundup, 24 hours in pictures, today… I thought for a second the picture desk had pinched my picture (and I’d have been very, very proud if they had, of course):
It’s not the same picture of course – the one used on the site was shot by Alessandro Abbonizio of AFP. But I suspect we must live quite close together, as we have almost the same angle on those vapour trails. And I’m happy a pro confirmed I was right to put the silhouette of those houses in the bottom of the picture. It certainly was a spectacular sight.
