St Paul's Cathedral from Millennium Bridge. by 


St Paul’s Cathedral from Millennium Bridge.
London, UK.

Camera Details Nikon D700 with 28-300mm Nikon Lense. ISO 320, 1/125th sec, f/5.6, 55mm. Handheld. Cold and Overcast Day. Winter 2010.

We travelled into the City today, that’s what people call the Money Centre of London, the Banking and Finance institutions are here, as is the Old Stock Exchange, the Bank of England an so many historic and modern example of architecture all mingled together.

It was great seeing St Paul’s close up for the first time in ages and walking around the streets at Christmas time is always a treat. Leadenhall Market looked even more quaint than normal with it’s decorations up. I took another look at the weird Lloyds Building and the beautiful Gherkin.

The Millennium bridge proved to be an attractive frontal for this image of St Paul’s, I like the angles and the colour of the glass and the constant stream of people. It’s rare to get a shot of this structure clear of people, even at night.

    Love the perspective. Interesting that the lines in the concrete seem to waver. Have a great Christmas, Don.

  • Hey there David. I’ve been to visit the Millennium Bridge a few times now and I’d not noticed that before, but it really stands out in this shot, I can only presume it’s too steep a drop for wheelchairs to be uniform all the way.
