View of the Thames from London Eye

View of the Thames from London Eye
This is a photo of the view of the Thames river from a capsule of London Eye. We have just climbed a short height and are not very far above the river. From this point, one gets a good view of the buildings from that height, and if the angle is correct, one also gets a good view of the sun reflecting from the water.

Interesting facts about London Eye:
It took seven years and the skills of hundreds of people from five countries to make the London Eye a reality.
The London Eye welcomes an average of 3.5 million customers every year. You would need 6,680 fully booked British Airways Boeing 747-400 jumbo jets to move that number of fliers!
The London Eye can carry 800 passengers per revolution - equivalent to 11 London red doubled-decker buses.
Each of the 32 capsules weighs 10 tonnes. To put that figure into perspective, it's the same weight as 1,052,631 pound coins or 5 Limo London vehicles!
The total weight of the wheel and capsules is 2,100 tonnes - or as much as 1,272 London black cabs!
