I’ve gotten into the habit of keeping my camera on me at all times and I have very grateful for it recently. I’ve found myself wandering around the city in the evening a lot over the last couple of weeks and have collected a fair few photos on the way. London by night is really quite beautiful.
Taking the opportunity to photograph it always helps to remind me how beautiful this city is and how lucky I am to call it home.
I even love the the industrial cityscapes.
Trafalgar Square by night…
Covent Garden and its pretty lights.
I also recently took the chance to go into St Paul’s Cathedral for the first time. It struck me that my first desire whenever I go to a city is to find something tall to climb, yet I had not gone anywhere to obtain a decent skyline view of London for many years and so me and James decided to put this right and visit one of London’s most famous landmarks for the first time and also climbs the 520 plus steps to the top.
Photography inside the catherdral is prohibited but the photos you can get from the top more than make up for this. We reached the fresh air just as the sun was beginning to set and gave London a golden backdrop.
Bloody gorgeous it was!
From here we wandered over the Millenium bridge to the Tate where we found our last stunning vantage point of the day. I suggest if you’re ever in the Tate taking the time to get up to the six floor as it looks out right across the river at St Paul’s and even though my camera was having a funny five minutes and didn’t want to focus, trust me when I saw its a view worth seeing.
Have you taken any night time photos you’re particularly proud of? I’d love to see them, so send me your blog post links and Instagram handles below!
