The title sums up my passion for low light photography.
This time, the location is London.
I sadly don't get down to London as often as I would like, but when I do, I always find time to go out with my camera and tripod.
My family always like to catch a show whilst in town...I hate sitting in a theatre watching some boring (for me) show, So, I make a quick exit of the scene and get down onto the south bank of the river Thames. My favourite place for London photography...Here are a few. I hope you like them.
I was quite lucky with this one. The sun had just set and the light was amazing. With the added enhancement of the orange-red sky, it made a nice framed image.
Once again. Luck seemed to be on my side.
I climbed up the steps from the South Bank onto Westminster Bridge.
The light was a little brighter up here in the open but I still managed to capture the relaxed atmosphere of a summer's evening in London after sunset.
The real photography fun would come about as the light really faded. That is my favourite type of photography and always a challenge to get it right.
many shots don't make it, but once in a while you hit the nail on the head and "Bingo" you have something worth having...we shall see futher down.
Finally, the night.
I love London in the dark.
Viewed from the Thames, it is spectacular.
All the reflections and shadows make a dynamic image.
The time exposure flattens the water making a sold surface to cast the light reflections and glare from the flood lit buildings and windows of the capitol.
