No, not really – only the sky behind it looks to have caught fire :-) One evening in April 2012 (after a day of heavy rain and even a few snowflakes in London) I was approaching Waterloo station on a train, and saw the sky becoming more and more fiery towards the west, so I rushed to get some pictures and this is one of them. Those rowers have one wonderful training stretch!
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.

    Outstanding light and colour.

  • The light was special that evening, after a strange day (hale, snowflakes and sunshine, then a thunderstorm). This is one of the rare times where I captured in RAW in order to be able to do it (more) justice afterwards. I’m glad you like the result – and thank you very much for adding this to your favourites and adding me to your watchlist, I’ll try not to disappoint :-)
