Parliament Hill in Hampstead Heath - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

A panorama from the top of Parliament Hill on Hampstead Heath. Parliament Hill is the highest point in London and from here there are spectacular views over the rest of London. The image was taken on a windy cloudy day in October 2008, with strong winds driving the clouds low and fast in the sky. Trees were beginning to change colour.
