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.

What can I say I’m on a London kick. I love this city and plan to capture more of it in the months to come. Now sit back and have a cuppa tea – enjoy!

Crossing Westminster Bridge !! by colknight

Crossing Westminster Bridge over the river Thames in London. It is a road and foot traffic bridge linking Westminster on the north side and Lambeth on the south side. The bridge is painted predominantly green, the same colour as the leather seats in the House of Commons. Lambeth Bridge is painted red, the same colour as the seats in the House of Lords.

The sun sets around 9 PM in these days, which is a better time for me because I don’t need to finish my shoot after 10 or 10:30 PM like a while ago anymore. This was taken at 8:40 PM, I caught one of the most amazing sunset of that week, and still had the time to go through what I’ve captured and when I got home. So I’d better go out more often before Winter comes!

Iconic London by DanMontalbano

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as the sun set yesterday evening. I’ve done a lot of travel photography in the last few years but have spent very little time capturing the amazing city I live in. Yesterday evening was a first step in remedying that.
