Twickenham Sunset

We’ve abandoned ‘Pic of the Week’ for the time being but thought this photo of the sky at sunset was just about worth a share with you. It was taken on Twickenham Green on a Sunday earlier in October. And for what it’s worth, no filters were harmed or used in the taking of this photograph.

    It’s the glow from the bonfire of English, Welsh and Scottish broken dreams ……….

      A cracking sunset – the only thing missing is a low flying A380
      Is anyone else fed up with them and the way Heathrow PR’s try to spin the unspinnable?

    • Alexis – totally agree with the A380 issue: they’re so low and loud: has anyone got cumulative stats on different types of planes on each of the flightpaths? Teddington peeps are clearly concerned and organised about resisting flight paths that go further south over them but us Twickenhamites must make sure the A380 issue is registered as we get slightly more of them apparently – the Dover/Detling flightpath over us is where the Asia-bound A380 routes go.

      Alexis, yes yes a thousand times yes. The noise is appalling.
      I did contact the groovy Heathrow noise complaints line. I hope they don’t use number of complaints as an index of local’s views on Heathrow noise, because nobody would report to them twice. What you get is an emollient message that the reason why huge noisy planes seems to be skimming your roof is because huge noisy planes are skimming your roof. This clears up that the din is due to planes not a Tetradactyl or suchlike. It does nothing to alter the noise.
      It’s really bad right now and I could get no sense that any changes were planned. Glad that Back Heathrow were exposed in the last RTT.
