Westminster at Sunset (1) by 


(AS IS, Finepix F70EXR, f/5.2, 1/35secs handheld, ISO100, -1/3EV)
I decided to take advantage of that short period in Spring when the sun sets just after I leave office, and the light is just right for some of London’s top spots. Here is the Westminster Palace, backlit by the setting sun, with the lights on the Albert Embankment just turned on like a string of luminescent pearls.
