Urban landscapes often feature wide, multi lane roads. The North Circular Road (A406) is one such busy route that arcs around the London capital.
This evening view was made quite quickly as the sunset was short but I felt that the resulting painting had everything in it that I wanted: The various metal structures silhouetted together, the anonymous vehicles carrying people to Heathrow Airport or Brent Cross Shopping Centre. Such a view also carries memories of childhood of the excitement of travelling to places and the excitement of coming home).
