It's amazing how much the light can change during a sunset, especially a dramatic one. During this fantastic one, I was around City Hall viewing a photography exhibition, when this amazing sunset almost came out of nowhere. I stayed around for hours, getting various scenes through all the phases of light and colour. It started off quite pink, then the blue hour was truly blue, especially where Tower Bridge was concerned. As the light started to die, the sky took on a magical lavender quality to it.

It was one of the best sunsets I have ever seen and an added bonus that I had my camera and tripod. To all the photographers out there, let this be a lesson to you; always stick around shooting, as the light can differ quite suddenly and completely change the whole scene. I saw a recent sunset in Paris that almost rivalled this, so I might post one of those shots up later this week.

This photo has been one of my desktop wallpapers for quite a while now, but I feel it's time to share it with the world. If you want the large version of this, it's available to buy from some of the many sources provided at the top of this description. This image is massively detailed so please view large. (Press L)

    Just incredible!!! I hate HDR - you have a gift for not only taking incredible shots but making HDR look as though it's right out of camera!
