I managed to get very close to the boat Sculpture in the Thames riverbank during the low tide. Although I had to climb a fence to get to this unusual spot...but it was worth it! It was great sky and clouds that night...

The River Thames (i/tɛmz/ temz) flows through southern England. It is the longest river entirely in England and the second longest in the United Kingdom. While it is best known because its lower reaches flow through central London, the river flows alongside several other towns and cities, including Oxford, Reading, Henley-on-Thames, Windsor, Kingston upon Thames and Richmond.

The river gives its name to several geographical and political entities, including the Thames Valley, a region of England around the river between Oxford and west London, the Thames Gateway, the area centred on the tidal Thames, and the Thames Estuary to the east of London. The tidal section of the river is covered in more detail under Tideway.

A SLICE OF REALITY

GREENWICH PENINSULA, LONDON, 2000

 

Standing on the foreshore of the Thames, the work comprises of a sliced vertical section of an ocean going sand dredger. The original ship was reduced in length by 85%, leaving a vertical portion housing the ships habitable sections: bridge, poop, accommodation and engine room. The slicing of the vessel opened the structure, leaving it exposed to the effects of weather and tide.
