Waterloo Sunset

I thought I’d photograph the sky at sunset as it has been so spectacular recently.

Me ocurrió sacar unas fotos del cielo cuando se pone el sol, como recientemente estaba tan impresionante.

So I went down to the Thames and picked a prime spot where there was nothing in the way of my spectacular sunset. No trees, no tall buildings, no radio masts – nothing. There was the river, the sky and me. And there was going to be this sunset.

Así que fui al Támesis y elegí un lugar perfecto, donde no había nada para bloquear la vista de mi puesta de sol espectacular. No árboles, ni rascacielos, ni torres de telecomunicación – nada de nada. Había el río, el cielo y yo. Y iba a ser esta puesta de sol.

I waited.

Esperaba.


And the sky was rubbish. It just went quietly dark, like on thousands of other evenings. Without a golden glow on the underside of the clouds, without the contrails turning into fiery streaks across the sky, without marvellous shafts of light showering down… without anything.

Y el cielo estaba aburrido. Atardecía sencillamente, como por miles de otras noches. Sin un resplandor de oro en la parte inferior de las nubes, sin que las estelas de vapor de los aviones se habían vuelto rayas ardientes a través del cielo, sin rayos de luz maravillosa cayendo de arriba abajo… sin nada.

Still, the view was good:

Sin embargo, era una buena vista:

As seen from Waterloo Bridge.

Como se ve desde el puente de Waterloo.

Dirty old river, must you keep rolling, rolling into the night
People so busy, make me feel dizzy, taxi light shines so bright
But I don’t need no friends
As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in paradise…
