Last weekend, after watching the weather develop for a few days, it looked as though Sunday morning would be interesting with thunderstorms forecast. I headed down to Tower Bridge, as I knew the light would be aligned with the bridge at dawn.
This was the first image I liked of the morning. The sky was a glorious mixture of red, yellow, orange and grey, opalescent clouds.
The rain held off for most of the time I was by the London Assembly. Several ladies past me, heading to an early morning gym class along with many joggers running along the Thames.
Above is the last shot I took before the light was obscured by ran clouds.
Which of these images did you like the most?
After a spectacular sunset last Saturday that unfortunately, due to time of year, happen over London Bridge rather than behind The Shard, lead to an impressive blue hour scene.
The clouds slowly gathered around the top of the skyscraper and half moon rising in the sky.
Shot on a Tilt-Shift lens, to straighten the lines of the Shard and surrounding buildings.
Walking through the streets of London a few years ago armed with my compact camera, I saw this picturesque scene of shafts of light emerging between the trees of Bedford Square Garden, close to Tottenham Court Road.
It was a glorious day in London today, so I grabbed the camera and headed to the South Bank. As Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are currently under wraps, the Millennium Wheel seemed like a good place to grab a few shots. This photograph was exposed for almost 7 minutes, hence the motion blur and absence of people (best way to remove them from the scene).
I am trying to improve my cityscape portfolio, especially of London as it is my home city. This weekend, I went walking for hours and ended up back at Tower Bridge. The streets were teeming with thousands of tourists and people on half term holiday. After much searching, I found a small platform on the Thames walk, overlooking Tower Bridge and the London Assembly. The clouds framing the Shard were perfect for a portrait of the scene.
Half an hour after the previous entry was taken, the Hong Kong skyline looked like this. Long exposure (16 seconds) has softened the water and sky. This was also taken from Kowloon, southwards towards Hong Kong island. Definitely one of my favourite places on earth.
Which cityscape would you photograph if you could choose anywhere to be?
Out walking around downtown Singapore a week ago and grabbed a shot of the cityscape just after the sun had dropped below the horizon. Still over thirty degrees even past 8pm but that’s life one degree from the equator.
