Rainy Riverside

On our first night in London for a long time, we headed to Tower Bridge, where I had intended to shoot the bridge in the royal blue twilight light.

After 9pm on a Rainy London Night

This image of London's famous clock tower - colloquially and incorrectly called 'Big Ben', but in actuality now called Elizabeth Tower - is one of a series of images I shot of the Houses of Parliament in Westminster on our last night in London on this trip. This image is something of a 'labour of love'... [more]

The Organ and the Nave of Ely Cathedral

This is another view of the magnificent interior of Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire, England. In this view, the beautiful organ and ornate architecture of the ceiling of the nave can be seen, right down to the stained glass windows beyond the high altar.
