Another 3am start to get into London and set up ready for the sunrise. 

Here is a shot of London's tower bridge reflected in a shop window to try and give some symmetry. 

I adore Tower bridge, it is a wonderful looking structure. And is classic iconic London landmark.  As you can see from the below iPhone image, it is easily visible even by plane.

An image of the Shard building in London, taken from moreLondon's shopping area. If you are taking picture from here watch out for security as they will move you on. Even at 5am and not a sole about... 

This was a frame taken from a timelapse video, foolishly i changed the ISO to a ridiculous 3200 and forgot to change back. Luckily the Nikon D700 can handle the high ISO not too bad and so all not lost. 


I am fascinated with the Shard, i think it is a stunning looking building. I took the below image from the viewing gallery near the top. Please check out a couple of posts on the Shard,

I love London.

Anther early start yesterday,

02:15hrs wake up call to try and get a nice sunrise image in London.

The sky literally went from black to grey... Which was a shame. 

I can't get enough of the landmarks in London. They are so iconic and look amazing. I understand what I am doing is nothing new, thousands of photographers better then I, have stood in the same place capturing these beautiful sights. 

To make one of your own and with your stamp is nice though and enjoyable.

I will post the finished edited image in a few weeks but it is up in the landscape section on my website.

That's the mrs and I suited and booted off to a wedding (as guests) in the nice weather...
