LightSpeed in London…

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…

Moon Olympics

These images are quite stunning by Luke MacGregor, it’s as if the moon was staging its own special display while the world’s athletes were putting on a show at the Olympic Stadium yesterday. Luke took these dusky gold shots of the moon as it rose behind the Tower Bridge’s Olympic banner, briefly forming a unique Sixth Ring on the London skyline.
