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'. I dragged Xenedette into the cold, rainy and windy streets where we stood in constant drizzle for the better part of two hours while I waited for the right light and shot my series of images.
To say I am pleased with the result is an understatement, as I have been wanting to shoot some twilight images of London's 'postcard' scenes for a while, and the weather has been less than accommodating.
Even tonight, the weather was not ideal or pleasant, but even during cloudy nights, the twilight produces a royal blue sky, with some additional texture in the way of the clouds.
