Long exposure photography is quite a passion of mine at the moment, and recently I got the chance to practice this in some of the most iconic places in London.
The one below is a particular favourite of mine, as like The Shard of Light, this one also has a great constellation in the night sky, which is Ursa Major on the right of St Paul’s Cathedral… you may need to click on image to get the large-scale version.
Another subject I like to explore is panoramas, so having the chance to do some of these in London wasn’t an opportunity I was going to miss…

Great effects. Sharing a photo of mine back in 1979 using a time exposure. My daughter assisted. We won $250 in a Chicago Tribune contest.
That’s a cracking photo Jim, I keep meaning to try a burning steel wool long exposure
She was twirling a fireworks sparkler and I got the impulse to shoot it. I don’t remember if I changed any settings. I didn’t have a fully automatic camera in those days.
I love London your images capture its beauty and character so creatively. Makes me want to visit again soon … 😉
Thanks Dorothy, a great city any time of year… Thanks also for the mention on Twitter as well 🙂

What a beautiful shot, somehow it looks tranquil with the lights flowing like silky water. Wonderful composition as always 🙂
The silky water is my favourite part of the shots …great minds think alike Seonaid 🙂
