The Cityscape Sunrise: London, UK. by 

The Cityscape Sunrise, London, UK.
Showing the Gherkin, The Tower of London and The Thames. Captured at 5.10am.
Camera Nikon D700 with Nikon 16-35mm f/4.0 Lense. ISO 400, f/11, 1/20th sec, at 35mm. Handheld, matrix metering,

Venturing down to the City this morning, everything was quiet and the sun was just rising. A beautiful clear morning and the air was fresh. People had obviously been having a good time the night before, because bottles and cans were strew everywhere outside City Hall. I love this view of the City in the morning light.

    A most pleasing image Don, catching the city while still asleep…not you, the city. :)) Like the feeling of tranquility in this scene and the colour nuances captured in the river. Another fave bud. >Ron<

  • Thanks very much for that Ron, I love all the different buildings on the Skyline in London and it’s soooo quiet when London is sleeping, but there were still quite a few people around.

    Great work Don – another winner to justify getting out of a warm bed before dawn.
    All the best

  • Hi Peter, thanks for that mate. I was up anyway, blocked up nose, sore head and had to get out and about:-)
