Big Ben by MarkSpokes


The Palace of Westminster (AKA The Houses of Parliament) over look a tranquil River Thames. The Houses of Parliament is most famous for the Clock Tower on the Northern flank, known world-wide as Big Ben. Big Ben however, is actually the name of the Bell held within the Clock Tower, whilst the tower itself is known as the Elizabeth Tower, as of September 2012. The Original Palace was destroyed in 1834 by a fire, and was subsequently rebuilt over the course of 30 years, finally being completed in 1870. The Elizabeth Tower was completed 12 years earlier however, in 1858, and remains to this day as the worlds Tallest four-faced chiming clock.

One image from the archives and one that I didn’t think was salvageable, thats why its important to keep checking through your photos from time to time as you do find that odd image that you miss from time to time.

I had spent most part of this morning working on another image that I took yesterday around Scarborough but just wasn’t really getting anywhere with it, no matter how I edited it I just didn’t feel it was right so decided to leave it and try another photo, don’t worry I will revisit that image sometime soon.

Anyone else get frustrating days like where you just can’t get the editing right?

I hope your all having a good week so far!
