London Eye at Night

Published March 9, 2004 in Night Photography, Travel

In 2004 my wife and I took a belated honeymoon to London. Since we had both been there before we decided that we were going to avoid the touristy things we had already done and see what else was there. After a week of fascinating, out of the way museums, galleries and pubs, we decided to give in to our tourist urges and take a cruise down the Thames to Greenwich.

We returned just before dusk, just across the river from the London Eye. Dusk seemed like the right time to check out the view from this monster Ferris Wheel so we gave it a try – despite the fact that it cost more than the cruise to Greenwich. During our ride London changed from a dull grey to a brightly lighted wonderland – well worth the price of admission.

This picture was taken on the way to the Westminster tube station with the Fujifilm S1 Pro and Tamron 28-78mm f/2.8 propped on the side of the Westminster Bridge for support.
