Artist's Description

(AS IS, Finepix F70EXR)
Shown in full glory, at its best in late evening or early morning light – there is no way I will make it there for the early morning, but I made it one Summer evening, just as the light was turning golden.
From Wikipedia:_Ben ‘Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and is often extended to refer to the clock or the clock tower as well.’ Together with The Palace of Westminster, it is part of a World Heritage Site (UNESCO listing)
For more interesting facts, see the official website
Bit of trivia I’ve learned recently (from this very interesting book: the chimes of Big Ben are transmitted live on Radio 4. Because radio waves travel at the speed of light rather than the speed of sound, someone standing outside Parliament hears Big Ben’s chimes on Radio 4 before they hear them from the clock itself.
