Maritime Greenwich

Maritime Greenwich: where history meets the present day. Looking above the centre and Greenwich Park, with the O2 arena (formerly known as the Millennium Dome) and over to the far left, the futuristic skyscraper landscape of Canary Wharf and the surrounding Isle of Dogs are shown here.

The Greenwich Meridian line (0⁰ Longitude) is depicted as a physical element in the image – normally visible at night time as a green laser beam emitted northwards from the Royal Observatory. This image was completed over several months.
