Foggy London

Sometimes the weather doesn't let you do what you really want to.  I'd found a fabulous vantage point and was aiming to get some nice shots of Westminster at sunset.  So what happens?  As soon as I get up there and set up, the fog rolls in......and what a stroke of luck that turned out to be!

I may not have got the shots I wanted but what I did get was far, far better -  the wonderful sight of dense fog engulfing one of London's great landmarks.  Thank you weather!

Sunsets happen every day, but such atmospheric conditions happen only rarely and I feel fortunate to have captured this and other striking images.  London' famous 'pea souper' fogs don't actually happen very often but it's still a famous image dating back to Victorian times.

A big thank you to Visit London for featuring this image on their Facebook page.

As with all my London and Places images, this is available as a print or canvass - please get in touch via the Contact Me page to discuss options.

Westminster Gothic - featured by Mayor of London's Office

I've just added a dramatic new image of Parliament and Big Ben to my London Gallery

I took this shot whilst trying out a new wide angle lens a few days ago - and where better to test the lens than around Westminster and the London Eye?  Great views in every direction and ample opportunity to get creative.

I always look for a fresh take on London's landmarks and the sun illuminating the historic lamp post added the colour I wanted and helped throw Parliament's outline into a dramatic silhouette, giving the image the imposing look I wanted.

Since I posted this on twitter, it's been featured and reposted by amongst others, The Mayor of London's office, Visit London, Visit Parliament and many others.  A big thank you to all of them for the exposure.

Like all my London and Places images, this is available as a print and canvass.  Please contact me for more details.
