A Photo a Week: On the Horizon

A little late with this entry for Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge as I see there is a new post with a different challenge πŸ™‚ However, here is my take with very congested subject matter on the Horizon…
This image is taken from the top of Muswell Hill looking roughly south-east. A 144 bus grinds its way up the steep climb towards the terminus of the route at Muswell Hill Broadway. The houses of Hornsey Vale, Stroud Green and Harringay form a backdrop with the buildings of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park at Stratford just visible on the far horizon.


  1. I like the way the photo highlights various levels of housing and perhaps off in the distance, civic centers, perhaps in addition to the Olympic Park. There’s a lot going on in the photo, but there’s harmony. i enjoyed the view. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed the view Debra. The red building just left of centre in the far distance with a loop at the top is the ArcelorMittal Orbit viewing tower in the Olympic Park and in front of it you can make out the main Olympic Stadium as a low flat white building – which is now used by West Ham Football Club. The two tower blocks to the left are on Woodberry Down at the southern end of Harringay, whose uniform serried ranks of housing are sometimes referred to as β€˜the Ladder’. I’m lucky – this view is just a 40 minute walk from home πŸ™‚
