I'd headed to Victoria Embankment to take a couple of shots of the London Eye but wasn't excited by the lighting- it was one of those windy, cloudy days where bright sunshine and murky grey alternated every couple of minutes.
Heading back to Westminster Bridge, I happened to glance up and was struck by the shadow cast by the Underground sign, with Big Ben in the background. Along with the old-fashioned lamp post, I love the grouping of London's iconic symbols.
So - plan A didn't work out but the impromptu plan B was even better! All that remained was to wait for the shadows to be at their strongest to get the contrast I wanted.
Thanks for reading, Mo
