This is a follow up post to the London by day post. The rain held off one night so we headed off to take some night-time photos. These were all taken by Archie with assistance from his parents!
Big Ben with a big red bus passing by. My job was to spot the buses coming and Mark’s job was to do a count down so that Archie could press the shutter button just at the point where they passed him. The red streak in the photo is the bus going past, believe it or not.
Another red bus passing Big Ben from a different angle
Tower Bridge at night – how glorious is this?
and, yes, a bus going through the middle of the bridge. This was a blue tourist bus.
The Shard at night – pretty non?
The London Eye with an avenue of Christmas lit trees.
Another shot of the London Eye, this time showing the County Hall building.
and yet another angle. It looks pink because the light cycle had gone to red and white.
View across the Thames towards St Paul’s Cathedral. Mark and I are underlit by a torch. The Millennium Bridge is in the background.
London by night is gorgeous; it is less crowded and when it’s been raining, all the roads reflect the light brilliantly.
