Tower Bridge Blue Hour

View large on black please!


As photographers, we all know that one of the best times to shoot is around sunset or just after during the blue hour. The light is so much better during these couple of hours, much like sunrise.


I was lucky to be around Tower Bridge on Saturday when we had the most amazing sunset. It was been a really cloudy day, but the sun came out strong just as it was setting. I was running around like a madman with my tripod, trying to get shots from all different angles and locations as the light was changing.


I'm not too sure why it was so prominent tonight, but the colours changed almost by the minute. It was golden to start off with, then pink, then became this magnificent lavender colour later on. I'm so thankful I had my Manfrotto tripod and Canon 5D with me!


The larger this image is, the better is looks, so please view it in the lightbox. I wish I could post up the full 5500px version of it, but then people might steal it. I'm really pleased with how this shot turned out and I think it's one of my best HDRs so far.


No images in comments please.
