Caption: Thames flood barrier with gates closed. The high water mark is visible on the concrete pillars. The gates are closed when there is a high risk of tidal flooding, or for maintenance. Closing the barrier seals off part of the upper Thames with a continuous steel wall spanning 520m across the river. Photographed at Woolwich, London, UK.
