Emirates Air Line cable car across the Thames – London, March 2013

The Emirates Air Line is a cable car that runs across the River Thames in east London, from the Royal Docks to the Greenwich Peninsula.  It is the first urban cable car in the United Kingdom and opened in 2012.  The cable cars journey a distance of just over 1,000 metres and cross the river at a height of about 90 metres, offering spectacular views of east London, the Royal Docks and the Thames.  The cable car provides a crossing every 15 seconds, carrying up to 2,500 passengers per hour in each direction. 

 I am co-presenting a food photography and styling workshop with Meeta  just outside Venice, Italy in May!  Register now to secure your place – numbers are limited!

Many photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as high-quality A3-size calendarsIf you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting with any month (not only January), please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements.
