Photo of the Day: London’s River Thames, ‘At His Own Sweet Will’

“Never did sun more beautifully steep
   In his first splendour valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
   The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
   And all that mighty heart is lying still!”— William Wordsworth, “Upon Westminster Bridge, Composed September 3, 1802

I took this photograph of the River Thames from a bus three years ago, when I was visiting London on a very short business trip.
