    On approach to LHR

    Sony A7RII Carl Zeiss Loxia 35 f/2

    As the Loxia is a manual focus lens, it has an advantage in that I can ensure the camera doesn't focus on any dirt on the plane's window...

    #1 is a clear winner. Love the River Thames leading to the distance.

    Wow, those are impressive! If they were skyscrapers, it would look like NYC., but this looks great. Is that a battleship in #2?

    Yes it's HMS Belfast a WW2 Destroyer which is a floating museum.

    The Shard is in two of the shots - the 4th highest building in Europe at 1,016 feet. And a few of the others are 600 -800 ft.

    You had a good seat on the aircraft! What strikes me about these is the density of the buildings. Soooo tightly packed.

    I'm a very frequent flyer with top frequent flyer status so get first choice. I nearly always choose the right hand side of the aircraft incoming to London...
