Caption: Thames flood barrier with gates closed. Viewed from the east. 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. A children's playground is in the foreground, whilst the Millennium Dome and the Docklands commercial district are visible in the distance. Photographed at Woolwich, London, UK.
