Twilight London


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.

Sheer magic.
