eaOne of the very first WordPress Photo Challenge I ever participated in was “Big” so it seems quite fitting I start doing the Photo Challenges again after nearly a 4 month break with the theme “GRAND”. The photo’s I’m submitting is of the Leeds Skyline on a very cold night.
I’d managed to sweet talk the security team looking after the City Island residential scheme, on the edge of the city to let me use one their apartments for some night photography. Amazingly he gave me the keys to the empty Penthouse suite ‘Room 102’ on the 19th floor, not ideal for those afraid of heights like me, but I was prepared to overcome this fear in the faint hope of getting some nice shots of the city at night.
This long panorama included the Crescent Moon on the far right with a lovely glint of Earth Shine.
Had to include a B/W shot, as it makes the city lights look so sharp.
I’ve made ALL the images a Gallery Link, so you can see the detail better.
Hope you like them 🙂
