London at Christmas

Which great city DOESN'T look great at Christmas - especially at night?

London's no exception and I have to say, it's looking especially pretty this year.

Here's the annual Christmas Market at More London, with The Shard looming over the scene.

 

To get this image, I used a wide angle lens (Tokina 11-20mm) with the camera set on a tripod at a very low height - that's what gives the dramatic angle looking up at the modern buildings in the background.

You can make out very faint blurs of passers-by as they move along.  The 1.3 second exposure causes them to blur out.

A big thank you to Visit London for featuring this image on Twitter:

I hope you like the image - like all my London images, it's available as a print.  Please contact me for sizing and pricing info.

Thanks for reading, Mo

A Random Monday London Photowalk

A day off? More to the point, a sunny day off?  Time to get into London with a camera.  

Covered a lot of ground today - South Bank, Borough Market, The Shard, several spots in the city and St Pauls.  

I'll be sharing some of the images in the galleries soon but in the meantime, here's a couple of images taken with my iPhone.  

Thanks, as always, for visiting my site.
