Woke up really early today, thinking there would be a good sunrise. Got off the bike, peeked out the window, saw the crescent moon. Figured, maybe not so much of a sunrise, but the moon over the city would still be cool.
Still not seeing much of a sunrise, decided to play with double exposures in camera.. Took a wide angle shot of the city, then switched to a telephoto and zoomed in on the moon, and took the second shot. Camera combined them automatically. The clouds that were now starting to surround the moon added some "fog" to the photo.
Then it started to dawn on me that all those annoying clouds that are now obscuring the moon might lead to a pretty good sunrise. I'd say that was accurate.
Then, I am watching this flat, ice free water on fire, and I keep hoping someone rows by. The purples were kind of gone by then, but the gentlemen of CBC did eventually oblige. And how was your morning?

National Gallery and one of the fountains in Trafalgar Square
Westminster Abbey at night
Either this is self-explanatory, or I don't even know why we are friends. :)
A postcard of just some of London's Bridges. Clockwise from top left: Tower Bridge, Southwark Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge, Golden Jubilee and Hungerford Bridges, London Bridge, Millenium Bridge. (The pedestrian Golden Jubilee Bridges are on each side of the Hungerford railway bridge).

Margit Haagr Hansen celebrates a come from behind win in the women's 50-54 race.. Trailing with 500m to go, she threw down a monster sprint and ended up winning by 4.3 seconds. I think she has 6 hammers to her name. Oh yeah, and she went 7:04.1.
My favorite ergo.

Men's open podium: Pavel Shurmei, Bartosz Zablocki and Angel Fournier Rodriguez. Might be the first time that the entire podium was composed of guys who've won the hammer before.
Olena Buryak snuck a peek at second place Georgie Rowe on her way to a seven second win in the women's open.
Erin added another her hammer to her collection, with her fastest CRASH-B time. (Photo credit: Alexis).
Don't forget to thank Dick and Peter for all the fun, guys.
New for this year was the inclusion relay. The partnership between US Olympian Anders Weiss and Brazilian Paralympian Rene Pereira was particularly cool.
Kyle Peabody and J. Heberlein took the win and awesome oversized wrench trophies in the inclusion relay.

Back in 2013, when Christian Kader put the handle down on Pavel Shurmei's last stroke to win by 1.4 seconds.
Not quite Ansel Adams, but doing multiple exposures in camera was pretty fun.

'T was the night before a massive blizzard, and all through the basin, the women of Radcliffe were doing some racin'. (Or rowing by sixes, but that didn't rhyme as well).
The super calm before the storm.
