I love getting shots tight against bridges with a wide-angle lens. I love the lines that it gives. Although Battersea Power Station isn't as well-known as the Houses of Parliament or as architecturally beautiful as St Paul's Cathedral, it is still an iconic landmark in London (albeit South London...).


I was going through shots from my photowalk with Murphyz and I asked on Twitter which shot I should put up. Without hesitation, Vulture Labs said Battersea Power Station. "Can't get enough of that building".


This shot was taken at around 23:00 hours on a Sunday night and used my remote shutter release for longish exposure of a minute. I like how, despite the light pollution, you can still make out stars. It's surprising how much they travel in this short amount of time! One of my favourite things about this image are the reflections of the lights across the Thames.


This looks much cooler when viewed in the lightbox. (Press L) (You can see so much more detail).
